There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. --Anais Nin

I love this quote. Everyone that reads it seems to walk aways with something different. What does this quote say to you??I will share my views on it on Tuesday so as to not influence your own.
Have a blessed day and bloom today...right where you are planted.

  1. I have thought on this for many days---it's a difficult one. I also kinda relate this to a cocoon & butterfly. In my "bud", I can be who I want to be, dress how I want to dress, talk how I want to talk, behave how I want to behave---and all how God created me. But the risk is opening up to bloom and let others see the beauty of what I hide in my bud. It's being vulnerable. So--I have to ask myself, "Do I really trust God to help me be okay with sharing who I REALLY am with others, even if other people don't like it?" or am I just giving Him "lip service" ?? And, of course, this also reminds me of, "to everything there is a season". This being my "Year of Gentleness"--it's time for me to bloom and share my gentleness with others! Trust the God I love--not making others opinions my "Higher Power". Tough topic, but worth thinking & praying on. XO!
