My Favorite “Heidi” Quote


Flowers Are

For me, this quote gives an optimistic, even comforting vibe, especially if you are in the midst of confusion whether you want to explore the world or remain inside your own bubble for the sake of comfort.

Like flowers that thrive when there is enough air and exposure to sunlight, humans also need to go out and experience things to grow and make the ride of life worth the while.

So if you need something to boost your confidence and encourage you to break free from doubts and fear so you can find your full potential, I think this quote has to be it.
