It Only Gets Better....

In light of recent circumstances I have observed with some of my friends, I'd like to dedicate this to all those in need of good signs.  Becaus it only gets better.  Nature says so.

Observe sunflower seeds. An often overlooked part of the sunflower, unless you are a baseball player and often ingest them.  They are small.  They are closed off.  And sometimes merely one can seem insignificant.  But it only gets better.

So you plant or scatter sunflower seeds. The next step is the sprout. This growth is often overlooked, with people wishing a flower would go ahead and bloom already.  But look a little closer, and you will see a highly mathematically-based pattern known as a fibonacci sequence, reflected here.  It goes to show you not everything can be controlled. And that perhaps everything has a purpose. And it only gets better.  

So with a little love, warmth, strength to persevere, we behold a sunflower.  And look, they come in every shade and size.  Some last for months, growing taller or wider, producing more and more of these bright oddities.  But they too pass on.  They leave us with seeds, the result of their entire season and entire life, as a sign that it only gets better. And you can always (and often will) start over. But it only gets better.
