Hey Lovelies! In reflecting on the heaviness on the lives and hearts of those around, and even evaluating my own life, I’m constantly reminded that every flower blooms at a different pace and every next level of bloom demands a different version of you. In a more literal since, every flower (PERSON) blooms (BLOSSOMS) at their own pace (TIME)! Thank goodness right!?! I’m not going to lie and if I’m truly transparent, many times I feel like a super late bloomer in some aspects of my life. However, once I sit with that feeling and thought, I tell myself, “you’re crazy’ and remind myself that I am in fact alive and mostly well, and to cut out those negative thoughts and press on!
It’s easy to get caught up in that “right now” phase. We often witness others living their best lives and appear to be manifesting those dreams. You’re human. I am human and it can be natural to feel a type of way when we see others bloom and blossoming and not ourselves! NEVERTHELESS, many factors account for this, but one significantly matters – THE VERSION OF YOU! What I’m learning and as someone who’s always felt the need to control many aspects of my life, you may not be ready to bloom, or it may a season of learning before the time is right for you to bloom, so on and so forth….
I’m also learning that’s it’s never about being better than anyone else, it’s about being better than who I used to be! Although easier said than done, it only hurts us more when we compare ourselves to others. Lately I’ve decided to make a better effort with not looking at/caring about what others have or are doing which usually results in bashing myself for not being on that same level… Each of us have a different path to reach when it comes to our own level – it might not be the same route taken as our neighbor/friend/family member, so why even put energy into making a comparison? Good news, you were specifically created for your own purpose and whatever route is meant for you to get there, trust that and proceed with your bloom and blossom! As long as you’re alive, you have the ability live to accomplish your own dreams and goals!
Which brings me to this…. your mind, MY MIND, is such a power tool, I can make anything happen, as can YOU! So what am I/have I been waiting for? What have you been/ what are you waiting for!?!?! Every single thing we need is somewhere within ourselves. It’s really up to us to discover the who/what/where/when/how and execute it through this amazing process called LIFE!
What a rant that was, all I can say is that, this dress reminded me of the process of blooming and that every flower does in fact bloom, and for that, I am super grateful!
Peace and Forever Blessings,
