    Default Roses and Thorns

    A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully. One day as he examined it, he saw a bud that would soon blossom, but he also noticed the thorns. He thought, "How can any beautiful flower come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns?" Saddend by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and before it was ready to bloom..., it died. So it is with many people. Within every soul there is a rose. The God-like qualities in us at birth grow amid the thorns of our faults. Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns... the defects. We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come from us. We neglect to water the good within us, and eventually it dies. We never realize our potential. Some people do not see the rose within themselves. Someone else must show it to them. One of the greates gifts a person can possess is to be able to reach past the thorns and find the rose within othes. This is the characteristic of love, To look at a person, and knowing his/her faults, recognize the nobiltiy in his/her soul, and help him/her realize that he/she can overcome his/her faults. If we show him/her the rose, he/she will conquer the thorns. The will he/she blossom, blooming thirty, forty, sixty, or hundred-fold as it is given to him/her. Our duty in this world is to help others by showing them their roses and not their thorns. Only then can we achieve the love we should feel for each other and only then can we bloom in our own garden. --Author Unknown--
    Belive in yourself and create your own destiny.Don't be a failure

    It was deep, but so true.
    How many times do we look in the mirror and say...oh my nose is horrible or OI'm too fat.
    How manty times do we think we're worthless.
    You're a very strong person if you've never felt that before.
    the point is, that we must see the good.

    Seeing good is a lot more boring than complaining about the bad...

    And alot less fun. Your idea up there is nice but if people dont remove the thorns and only focus on the bud they will never become any better.

    True. But sometimes people are so blind that they don't think they need to be any better in the first place...

    there is one pareticular thorn in my life that happened on MArch 5, 1993 and I will never forget it. but all the same, this passage does have a goodp oint. YOu have to accept the thorns to truly learn from your mistakes and to heal from past traumas, but you cant overlook the roses either. Concentrating on just one or the other isnt going to hlep you through life. You cant ignore hte thorns and you cant ignore the roses. You have to see the whole of yourself to be truly happy and successful in life I think.

    i thought it would be something that ppl should think about. As far as doing what it says its allways not so easy and very easy to forget, and y it might be fun to concentrate on the bad if thats all you do you'll never grow. bman i don't think you should give up i think you should move on i'm not saying it will be easy Lord knows anyone with heart it will be a rough journy for ya but i'm sure thats what your Grandma would want but its your life and you must choose how u will live it
    Belive in yourself and create your own destiny.Don't be a failure
