Daily, my phone gets picture and quote updates and I find some of them inspiring. But none has had as much impact on me like the picture that came up today. This post was inspired by the attached picture.
The first thing that popped into my mind immediately I saw the picture was the fact that one flower was more visible than the other.
And the message for me was that despite the fact that the camera used to take the picture didn’t make the full ‘glory’ of the flower at the lower end of the picture visible, it didn’t mean that the flower was less glorious.
It just might be a function of positioning.
Or the need of the cameraman was perfectly met by the one that he chose to focus on rather than the other.
Depending on your position, you may be seen clearly by some and not by some others. It does not in any way reduce your value.
Whether the cameraman/woman intentional decided to cast a dull view of the other picture and focus on the seemingly more visible flower or it was because the other flower was far away, that flower must still be as glorious as the one that got all the shine in this particular picture or even more glorious. Who knows?
Fret not when it seems that you are not being noticed like you feel you deserve.
Have you ever been at a point where you think to yourself that you have what it takes to be on that centre stage that someone else who is probably not half-way as talented as you is on?
Probably you have much better content than the other person who has more visibility than you.
Maybe your credentials are more robust than that of the other person who got the promotion.
Don’t worry. The ‘camera’ is coming for you and soon, when the time is right, you will be the one in the spotlight.
And if that particular camera doesn’t showcase your beauty, maybe there is a custom-made camera that will.
The key thing is to keep being YOU where you are right now.
Never lose your identity in a bid to become like the fellow in the spotlight today.
Let the angel coming with your Heavenly parcel meet you where you are supposed to be. And make sure that he finds you in your own skin. ☺
Be encouraged by the fact that your time shall come. When it’s your time, you will shine your shine brightly and no force can dim your light!
I hope this inspired you like it inspired me.
