Just Bloom

In the middle of some dreary, cloudy, and cool southern California weather, I thought a colorful bouquet of blooming flowers from the local farmer's market would chase away the blues. Life has been really busy lately with hardly a minute to catch my breath. I found this quote to bring me back to what's important...

"The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers."

When we surround ourselves with those who really understand our spiritual and emotional needs, we really do bloom and become better because of that love or friendship. I can name lots of people who have helped me to bloom...I can only hope that I have done the same for them!!

  1. Wow how profound. I know what you mean by that quote. I know as I am facing one of the most difficult... no nope... Definatly THE MOST difficult time of my life... that the people out there that really "get me" make me not only feel better and stronger but inspire me to be better. Hope you are well!! xo Bryanna
