Blogging on The Brightside

"I think I can. I think I can. I think I can." -The Little Engine That Could

“What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again.”

— Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

Something so small holds the potential for immense growth. While the appearance of this ordinary weed doesn’t always make us “happy”, children can’t help but rip them from the ground and send their seeds fluttering throughout the air. Shouldn’t we learn from children?

Why shouldn’t we be like dandelions? Impossible to get rid of, floating along where life takes us, beautiful and delicate while strong and unfailing in our tasks. We thrive wherever we are and lend ourselves to those who will come after us. And what’s more… we could be this promise for someone else. The promise that life goes on and that it will be good even if it might not seem like it.

Love and Light, Carly
