Ever walked down the street in the middle of summer and seen a bunch of weeds growing out of the concrete? No water, no fertilizer and no one caring for them yet they are growing everywhere.

Whereas, roses are completely different. They need to be pruned, watered, fertilized and rely on sunlight to thrive.

Weeds are ugly, roses are beautiful.

Weeds are like negative thoughts…they will always be there no matter what. We don’t have to work hard to be negative, lazy, judgmental, critical, two-faced and down-right mean.

Being positive and uplifting, inspiring, honest, hard-working, caring, thoughtful and selfless takes a lot of energy and awareness.

If we want to be weeds and be ugly and horrible to look at and be around then no work is required. But we probably won’t have a lot of friends or positive influences in our life.

If we want to be impressive, elegant and slender like roses it’s going to take some work.

Weed out the negative thoughts and negative attitudes and plant in the positive and grow so impressive roses.

Yes, it’s going to take some work.

But do you really want to be a weed?
