A smart friend of mine once posted something about sunflowers… it blew my mind away! The sunflower follows the sun during the day and has the ability to provide energy in the form of nourishment and vibrancy.

FUN FACT: Sunflowers usually face the sun but when they cannot find it they face each other.

So cool right! In fact in some cultures, these flowers symbolize faith. In the general sense the ability to seek enlightenment and truth. Now isn’t that something?

The gorgeous bright flower does truly brighten up a room.

So today I was just thinking, why is it ever so easy to look away from the sun and just notice everything that seems to be going wrong. I mean we all have that friend who for some reason always pours ash on your light. You know what I mean right? Each time you speak with them or even just hang out, you feel drained and generally sad and most times when you really think about it, you can’t even remember what beguiles you… I know you know whom I speak of. Don’t be that person! Now I think there is nothing wrong with the shoulder for your friend to lean on. Would it kill you to be the reason someone can smile and forget for a second the many issues that come with this life?
