Sunflowers have always been my favorite flower; they’re tall, strong, and always face toward the light. But not only are they beautiful, they are also capable of removing toxic ingredients from the soil, so other plants can thrive. When I was at my lowest, going through difficult times, sunflowers always inspired me to remove toxic thoughts from my head, and toxic things from my life. I’ve always loved to write, and sunflowers gave me the courage to want to share my writing with the world. The words in this blog are mine; straight from my heart, fearless, authentic and raw, just like a sunflower.
