I recently stopped by a florist shop a few days ago to buy some flowers. There were peonies in every color, shape and size in full bloom and on display. I just simply adore peonies. Especially the fern ones! An interesting fact about peonies you may not know, is they bloom in every color except blue. This seemed so strange to me when I initially read about them. Just the thought of a flower so beautiful in this world that blooms in EVERY color except blue, was just mind blowing.
While researching online, I ran across this article that stated, “In the botanical world, plants referred to as blue frequently open blossoms in purple shades. In peonies, the pigment responsible for producing blue is less pronounced and in many cases lacking. A blue peony flower is more likely to come about through a mutation in the plants’ genes. This would most likely occur through a plant virus.”
This had me thinking on a deeper level… If a blue peony is more likely to come through a mutation in the plants genes (a virus)….Then we can relate this theory to our happiness. Many times we think our happiness is based on how people, and life circumstances makes us feel. When in reality, you have the choice to be happy or blue every day. You’ll either allow the unfortunate circumstances or negative people around you to infect you with a virus, or you can choose to be happy regardless. Never allow the virus ( negative people, sadness, loss, and so on..) to change you, or take away your happiness. Remember that happiness is always a choice.
