Learning to Love
There are parts of myself that I don’t really like, and instead of pulling them out and trying to get rid of them I’m trying to learn to love them and appreciate their qualities. This is the road to loving myself as a whole.

Day 2: Dandelion
I learned that there may be things that come up that I don’t like but instead of trying to get rid of or kill whatever it is, just incorporate it into my plan.

Learning to live and love
Sometimes you can control your environment, other times you can’t. Learning to live and love your surroundings and people around you through frustration and doubt will create a positive energy for everyone and especially for yourself.

The Dandelion: Reflection
Through this story I learned that in life, we are sometimes stuck in situations, or with things that we really may not like. But over time, it is important to accept the things we obviously cannot do anything about and learn to love instead of to hate.

The Dandelion: Day 1
Throughout life, there are going to be many challenges facing us, and we cannot always control the environment God will place us in. During the times we are no in full control, we must learn to accept, adapt and grow where we have been planted.

I learned that you’re going to face challenges and no matter how hard you try to fix it, if it’s meant to be it will. It always will turn out into something great or bearable. It may take time and you may be frustrated or loose sleep but it will work out in the end.

Tengo que aprender que no puedo controlar todas las cosas que me pasan, así que lo mejor es dejar que todo fluya y al final puede ser que me sorprenda como resulta todo y que no era tan malo como pensaba

Flaws can be beautiful, if you begin to accept them and love them, they can truly be a wonderful thing.

It’s all about perspective 🌞
Learning to live with things I don’t like isn’t easy. I’ve had to do it a lot though out my life and sometimes I’ve been stuck with it for a long time. But, eventually the day came when the problem, whatever it was at the time, got resolved and I went on. Learning how to deal with or live with the problem that I can’t get away from is key. I have a problem in my life right now but, I’m so grateful that it’s a wimpy little thing compared to the past. At this point in my life it’s all about perspective. Thanks 🙏 Aura for shining your light on me 🌅

We have all had these “dandelions” in our lives. Learning to love and appreciate them can be a struggle. Sometimes though, weeds have the most beautiful flowers if we only take time to appreciate them. Sometimes the weeds are medicinal or healthy food choices. Other times they are beneficial for pollinators and are food for animals. Everything has a purpose.

I’m not that guy
I will accept the things in my life I absolutely cannot change, but I tend to fight tooth and nail when challenged to have my plan(s) succeed or to fulfill my needs. I HATE giving up or giving in!

stress
i stress a lot due to my lack of preparation and I suffer the consequences and still can’t learn everything seems out of my control sometimes so maybe I should learn to “let the weeds grow out”

Meaning behind this story
This story was really relaxing but I can’t seem to understand the meaning behind it? Or is it just a story and I’m thinking too hard?

Learning to love
I learned that negative things will still be present in your life but sometimes you can’t get rid of them so you have to incorporate them into your life as if they were supposed to be there in the first place.

Let it be
There are lots of things that pop up that we’re not going to especially like, but the reality is that they’re going to be there. I need to either live with it, ignore it or move out of town. 🙏😂

Perspective
Life is all about your perspective. You can think of your situation as being absolutely terrible, and it will be. Or you can choose to find the good in the situation, and it will be. It’s all about what you choose to be mindful of. Is your glass half empty, or is it half full? 💕

Sometimes we have situations or things in life that come up suddenly and we never wanted or asked for it to happen. Instead of looking at it as an ugly or pesky problem, we can change our perspective about it. “It’s not so bad, I can live with this”

I have learnt that life doesn’t always go how you planned it, to learn to accept and tolerate situations as it’s all part of the journey to what makes you who you are... a rather caring and great person to know!

Not what I Expected
I thought that at the end of the story the man would find how destructive dandelions can be. But he didn’t. He just kept going with his garden.

This was a sweet little story; not particularly something I would usually listen to but somebody else could definitely like it a lot. Everyone has their own opinion :)

Embrace
Although i will be needing quite a few more sessions, but this session surely was a big step towards all the positivity i am aiming to gather. It taught me to embrace everything, embrace with wide, open arms.

That made me really happy
It teaches you the significance of something or someone you may not really like .

Upside
Everything has a good side, so, if you just can’t get rid of something that you find unpleasant, just let it be. Eventually you’ll find his good parts which will in the long run do good for you too.

Accept the Unexpected
I learned that sometimes unexpected things may come up in life which as much as we try to fight it at some point we must learn to accept it to be able to move forward.

I think mindfulness really helps with this - learning to see and experience things without judgment. I found many years ago that my dislike of some things was caused by the lens that I saw them through rather than the things, people or events themselves.

Learn to love the dandelions:
Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned. But we must make the best out of what we are given otherwise we’ll just end up fighting ourselves in the end. If you can’t learn to be happy with what you’ve got you’ll learn you’ll never quit be happy regardless of anything.

Loved this , it made me wonder to take time out each day with someone you love or something each day
Never say never , say I will do , is make the time to spend in the garden or just sitting and reflecting what can be , time moves to swiftly.

Dandelions could be perceived as a metaphor for the hindrances I face in my life. I just have to accept them, figure out a positive side of that occurrence and focus on moving forward.
Weeds could be beautiful too. Look at things from a different positive angle.
