One day a man was walking, absentmindedly lost in his thoughts, and he sees a Green House. He walks past it and then stops and turns around because some thing catches his eye. He looks and sees a beautiful Orchid. He has to have it. So he buys it. He admires how vibrant the color is. He’s gentle with it. When he get’s home he places it in a window for the best sunlight of his home. Admires it for days. Then one day, one of the stems start to turn brown and he becomes displeased. Not admiring the beauty of the Orchid as he did before. A few days later, he starts to become dismissive of it because another stem starts to turn brown. A few days after that, the orchid begins to slowly wither away and he becomes annoyed, just looking at it in disappointment. Finally, after a couple of weeks, the Orchid dies. No more beauty. The man just throws it in the trash, upset that he wasted his time thinking that he would have something nice to admire at home.
Women are like Orchids. Beautiful to the eye. Something to be admired. Men will vie for their attention so that they can have that woman which they’re drawn to. She will look beautiful to him, but if neglected she can wither away. By simply trimming away the brown stems, taking time to get to know that woman, the beauty of that relationship can grow. Men are viewed as simple creatures to some, but in actuality, a man can be very perceptive if he stops and really look at the flower before. How green is the stem? How vibrant is the color compared to the first day he took notice to it’s beauty? Is the soil still rich? The right amount of water to nourish it.
The most beautiful things that one attains, can often be things that require more than just a simple smile. Telling them you love them everyday, but never nurturing their heart. Assuming that just because you place them in the most ideal place that is enough to keep them happy and content. The easiest mistakes often made or those of instant gratification. Anyone can buy a silk Orchid and dismissively forget about it. But when you want authentic and rare beauty, you have to take time to trim the stems, place in the prefect spot, repot the soil, and give it just the right amount of water. Not too much or too little.
