At the beginning of 2016 I thought about what my word of the year would be. BLOOM immediately came to mind. Such a simple but powerful word.
Imagine a field of flowers unapologetically blooming right where they are. Or a single flower blooming, surrounded by nothing but weeds. No matter how my day is going, flowers always manage to put a smile on my face. Not just because of their beauty but also because of the process that I know they went through to get to that beautiful bloom.
A process that started with a seed that has grown with time, determination and gentle care. A seed was also sown in me. A seed of change, of a fresh start, of love, of hope. After carefully watering that seed, I’m ready to bloom because as Anaïs Nin said so beautifully: “The day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to bloom.”
With Find Inner Beauty I want to inspire you to BLOOM with me. Wherever you are planted, whichever season you are in, no matter how many thorns surround you or how little sunshine you have gotten. All you have to do is dare to bloom…
