As I was looking at the blooms this morning, it got me thinking about how we as humans, just like plants and any other living things, need just the right conditions in which to really come alive.
There have been times when I've been distracted and forgot to water my plants at just the right time. I felt a sense of guilt when it happened – when their soil was dry and their leaves started to droop a bit.
But then I would remind myself that a little adversity goes a long way in building character and resilience, and that very few living things in this world have the exact perfect conditions at all times.
Seeing my plants every day is a constant reminder of the necessity for my own personal self-care. They are a visual reminder that living beings need to be nourished and nurtured - each in their own unique way.
Lastly, what aspects of your life make you bloom? What are you doing when you feel like the absolute best version of yourself? What are you passionate about, committed to, and enriched by? What makes you come alive?
While we can't control many aspects of our lives, each of us has the ability to work within our own unique situations to create a strong foundation of self-love and self-care, while nurturing the parts of us that make us feel awake, aware, and alive!
