|Bright yellow dandelions grow in abundance in early summer, and although many people consider them weeds, there's no denying the cheerful, sunny flower's association with spring, hope, and fresh starts. When dandelions start to bloom merrily all around us, it's a signal that warmth, growth, and months of sunshine are soon to come.
On a sunny day, pluck a dandelion from somewhere in your neighborhood, hold it over your heart, and say:
Bring me happiness,
Joy, and power.
Warm my soul
And brighten my heart.
Lift my spirits,
Let good times start!"
Press the flower against the sidewalk and draw a happy face with it. If you press hard enough it will make a visible yellow mark, but just drawing in the air is fine too. Everyone who walks over the happy face should feel a cheerful vibe in their step.
