When we look at the dark, muddy water we may not know about the breathtaking beauty in the Lotus Flower preparing to burst open and shine in all its undefinable glory.
Today I thought about the 100’s of children I have seen over the years who have been judged categorised even labelled based on what is seen on the surface. What if we took the time to look deeper under the surface of obvious symptoms? What if just like the Lotus with the right conditions below the surface magically emerges a perfect Lotus Flower. So too with the right conditions under the surface emerges our child shining brightly to their true potential.
Through the gift of neuroplasticity, we know we can change the often invisible underlying conditions and then stand back and watch them grow into a spectacular individual a process that will take our breath away just like these Lotus Flowers did for me today.
Sorry I couldn’t get closer to the Billabong the crocodiles had me bluffed!
