Today, I have discussed stress more than I normally care to. From consoling friends to helping my boyfriend, I was talking about it so much, I started to think of chandeliers.
The chandelier is a carefully balanced piece of art. Each arm that extends dutifully from the center holds gems of varying size, color and weight. The chandelier is the tight rope of home decorating: one minor flaw, and the whole thing can come crashing down.
Life is the same way. If you don’t have everything in balance, or if the balance shifts a little, everything gets thrown off.
And if you get overloaded, the whole mess just falls apart.
Tulips on the other hand … I would love to be a tulip. Carefree, sitting in the sun all day, basking in the rain. Tulips have no obligation to the world other than the elegant display of their beauty.
