Months and months ago I started my garden from seeds.
Numerous types of tomatoes, bell peppers, okra, green beans, jalapenos, strawberries, etc. I sectioned them in trays until they were ready to transplant and then planted in planters or the ground.
The plant in this pot was supposed to be strawberries. Clearly something happened and a jalapeno seed got mixed in. By the time they were formed enough to notice, I didn't want to chance ripping the jalapenos out and messing up the strawberry roots ... so I decided to let them attempt to grow together.
Amazing thing ... despite the planter being intended for a strawberry plant ... all I can notice now is the plant that "doesn't belong", "stands out", the one that "is different" ... the plant that is thriving despite the unique place in which it's growing. That jalapeno doesn't know it's planted among strawberries ... it knows it's a jalapeno and it's purpose is to GROW ... NOT to focus on being the "same" or to "compete" with the strawberry plant. Because we all know, they're completely different and can't compare.
I always thought I was a strawberry girl ... but the more that I see the beauty in being the jalapeno, the more I realize that I wasn't created to be like "everyone else" ...
I wasn't created to "blend in" ...
I WAS CREATED to stand out, be bold, be unique and to THRIVE wherever I'm planted!
