Mindful Living Moment: Bloom

I love flowers. I love receiving them and buying them for myself. I love the intoxicating aroma of calla lilies and the delicate beauty of peonies filling my home with their fragrance and beauty.

I remember my husband one afternoon bringing home this huge bouquet of calla lilies. I got one of my vases and filled it with water and plant food, placed the flowers on a table in my library, right in front of a window, so they would get light. I enjoyed walking past my library and seeing the beautiful flowers, but one day I noticed a few began to die, they hadn’t even open up and they were dying. I changed the water, added the plant food and placed them back in the window. The next day more of the flowers were dying. I sat in my library wondering why were the flowers dying so quickly? Then it hit me, there’s too many in this vase. I will take some out and put them in another vase. The most amazing thing happened, the flowers the next day were beautiful, vibrant and some of them began to open up.

I learned a great lesson that day, we must give things room to bloom. I must allow the proper space for the ones I love in my life to bloom, to grow and find their way. When we pay attention with love and not fear, we can provide what is needed for the people in our lives to bloom and sometimes what they need is more space and compassion.
