It's not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's learning how to dance in the rain.

What flowers mean to me. As Mulan says “A flower that grows in adversity is the rarest of them all.” The most beautiful thing about flowers is that they need the rain to survive. Flowers bloom the most when the rain falls, seeking out vital nutrients from the dark days which are natural parts of life. Instead of succumbing to gloomy weather, they use these days to grow and build stronger foundations. I find we are able to learn a lot just from observation, for the flowers understand that rain helps them exist and balance with the light of day. We deserve to see the beauty that lies within the rainy days because when the sun comes out, we too like the flower will be much stronger than we were before. My wish is that we blossom just as the flowers do with each season, and understand that the “bad days” are there for a reason.
