Inspire Me Mondays...The unexpected

The inspiration for this installment of IMM (Inspire me Mondays) was about an unexpected surprise in the face of beauty.

I am inspired by a gorgeous orchid that was striped and spotted in fuschia, white and lemon-lime that has revealed plain bright fuschia flowers on one branch (the last one to bloom). And I thought to myself how odd...yet timely. We are all try to define ourselves during many points of our lives. Always trying to conform to the structure that we call "normal life". I am no exception to this quest for I have been calling on my Angels for divine direction for some time now and am always asking for signs to help lead the way. To clear that proverbial fog that seems to cloud the truest vision of myself.

Here, right in front of my eyes was just one of those signs. It told me that I need not hide the extraordinary side of me, that unexpected flash of brilliance, the striking contrast to the ordinary and mundane. It shows us all to look for those things that make us unique and special. Characteristics and nuances that are only meant for you and you alone.

It was my unconventional answer to a conventional that I seem to keep asking over and over again. Always seeking the "right" answer, the normal answer, the "you should be doing this or you are not worthy" answer.

Maybe all of those answers don't apply anymore.

Maybe I should open myself up to the unconventional just might be my calling.

Thank you. Message heard, loud and clear.

I just joined IMM and am so happy to find you! I meditate, too, and when I get the message: "Expect the Unexpected!" I know I'd better buckle my seatbelt because Spirit has something special in store for me. Thank you for these beautiful photos and your words.
