This is a photo I took last year on a trip to Bucharest. Not far from my daughter’s house is the Circus Park. Every time I get there I like to sit on the shore of the lake to admire the lake full of flowering lotuses. I hope to see them again this year. I have always been amazed that the beauty of this flower remains unaltered even though it is surrounded by mud.
“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”

Whenever you doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower, ok?
