Each year the blog takes on a different focus. In 2019 the goal is for each post to bring you the reader a lesson, quote, message, or story that can help you grow.
I use words to frame my daily posts. Many are words I have never heard of. That is the case with HELIOTROPISM.
The word means the directional growth of a plant in response to sunlight.
The sunflower is one great example.
Sunflowers are heliotropic, which means that they turn their flowers to follow the movement of the Sun across the sky. If you are in to learning more here is a link to other flowers that follow the sun.
There is also something similar called the Heliotropic Effect that impacts individuals, groups, organizations, and cultures. It is a theory that says “We work towards the most positive image we have of ourselves”.
That self-image is like the sun. We need to make sure what we are following is the light not the darkness.
