Three years ago the mother of a little child from my martial arts courses gave me the very first orchid I have ever owned. Her little boy was a bit wild and she was very grateful for my patience with him. That gift gave me a lot of courage and boosted my confidence as a martial arts instructor for kindergarteners!
But I was afraid it wouldn’t live long. For me, orchids are delicate plants from another world. I never thought about how low-maintenance and tough they are. Only because I remembered its meaning of positivity for me did I keep it, even when it was faded. What a great surprise a few months later when my beloved orchid bloomed again! I haven’t done much and I think that’s a good thing.
The color of my little fighter is pink, and just when I wished I had some kind of twin for it, I saw a wonderful white orchid blossoming at my local supermarket. I just had to take it with me, and now I hope my courage and confidence will double.
