Be like the flowers

A Sufi holy man was asked what forgiveness is.
He said, ‘It is the fragrance that flowers give when they are crushed.’
– Unknown

I saw that quote in one of my groups today and it really made an impact on me. To my mind, there is something so beautiful and dignified about that image, and a lesson that I want to remember in the times when I am struggling or feel defeated.

Be like the flowers… whatever happens, try to leave something beautiful.
