Being a mentor is a gift for both the mentor and the student. They are a teacher, guidance counselor, coach, motivational person, and a guide. It takes understanding, patience, a caring and loving attitude, and a desire to understand the student’s strengths and weaknesses.
Learning their abilities or lack thereof, their personalities, capabilities, and the person as a whole, understanding that each person is different from anyone else and may need to learn by various means.
Then working with them, guiding, teaching, offering emotional support, advising, and providing wisdom that will mold and shape them to become the best person they can be on their journey in life.
Being a mentor to someone is an extraordinary blessing that takes desire, a willing attitude, a loving heart, dedication, and commitment.
Bless the mentors that helped change so many lives in the world and in so many ways.
Dandelions are the perfect example of giving life after a collapse.
It is a beautiful and cheerful little flower that stands tall as if to be smiling at the world. It provides pollen for bees, food, and herbal remedies for humans, but yields far more to life. For as its life collapses and the beautiful flower dies, a new growth begins.
A beautiful white globe of winged seeds appears. Sitting waiting for the right timing, the right wind, to lift them from their stalks, and float them in the wind to their new and unknown destination.
A journey that is elegant and light, drifting without thought, gliding to the place that their seeds will land. Planting their seed into the ground to begin a new life for the world to see and enjoy. A testimony to overcoming destruction and starting a new life.
They are the parachutes of life in the world and an example of new seeds of life being planted.
