One of my Christmas cactuses bloomed a single bloom for Thanksgiving. I placed it so that it would be the star of the show in my solarium.
It's only a single bloom on a single plant, yet with that narrowed focus i am more aware of the joy arising in me as i walk by the lone flower several times a day.
This is our challenge: to savor the beautiful in our lives, no matter how small. To savor the beautiful several times each day in order to re-wire our neural networks.
Happiness arises at the sight of a single flower.
