The Earth Laughs in Flowers -- Message of the Day

Today, I saw an image of pansy flowers, and my face immediately lit up in a smile because, to me, pansies always look like they're laughing. The picture reminded me of a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, "The Earth Laughs in Flowers".

To me, this message is reminding me to be more light-hearted, to not take things too seriously, and to laugh more.

Sometimes, I get caught up with my work, and when things don't go the way I'd like them to go, I feel that I'm losing control, and that can upset me -- not that I was ever really in control right from the start.

While it's good to have a goal and a plan when we set an intention, the 'how' 'when' or 'where' is not up to us. We have to leave those details to the universe, and that can be frustrating as we go through the experience of manifesting. © Erika Marie Rose and Good Vibes, 2019
