Nature has an amazing ability to heal and regenerate. Two years ago I had received this beautiful mini cyclamen. Unfortunately, somehow after many months, it faded away until it had only one leaf left. It looked so sad.
I don’t throw plants away unless they are truly, completely, dead, and I was determined to nurse this cyclamen back to its original health and vitality. I observed it every day, I made sure it was well watered and fertilized, and I watched for signs of new life. Lo and behold, a second leaf emerged after a while, then a third, then one of our cats chewed the second leaf and I felt discouraged. But here we are, my cyclamen has six big new leaves and several new shoots. I am positive that it will make a complete recovery and produce beautiful flowers soon again.
Remember, you are nature, too. Your body’s ability to heal is infinite. Just watch Anita Moorjani’s story of coming back from what the doctors thought what a hopeless state.
