Earlier today I saw an image online that sparked my interest. It was an image of a sunflower that was losing its petals but had a few that were still in tact and the caption of the photo was “even as your petals fall – how are you continuing to bloom?”
This really got me thinking.
I make so many mistakes, at times I give so much and the lack of reciprocity leaves me feeling drained – both physically and emotionally. But I always have to remember that everything is working together, leading me to something greater no matter how small the setback may be.
As your petals fall, how are you continuing to bloom?
Life is a series of events set up to push you into the right direction, set up to trigger the process of Becoming Who You Are. If you let it… In that I mean this:
God has already given you everything you need to be the person that He has called you to be. All you need to do is accept that person and when you accept that person you become that person.
You won’t be beautiful one day. You’re beautiful today because you are fearfully and wonderfully made in the image of God (Psalm 139:14). You won’t flourish one day. You’re flourishing everyday. Everyday, as you take the necessary steps to becoming the person you know you can be through Christ, you’re flourishing. Often making mistakes, yes, but flourishing nonetheless.
Allow yourself to make mistakes. Accept your mistakes with open arms because they just show that there is room for progression. If you’re not professing, your regressing and if you’re not regressing you’re stagnant. Stagnancy only leads to complacency. Progression leads to fulfilment, purpose.
Continue giving yourself the opportunity to learn. To grow. To be emotional but also to be logical and prayerful because in all things you need to find the right balance (Proverbs 11:1).
You are a lily rising from murky waters. Bloom, Flower Child 🌻
Peace & love xoxo
