Bloom wherever you are, not just where you're planted, and not just when you are planted. If there's one thing I've learned thus far in my twenties, it's that more times than not we are in an uncomfortable and unshakable process that requires digging deep, uprooting, and abandoning an all too familiar and common comfort zone. It's easy to stay within ourselves when so much around us is constantly changing. It's easy to stay within ourselves when we falsely wait for someday, for things to be the way we wished they should be, or for things to turn out they way we think they deserve to be.
Blooming is made possible when we focus on the intentions of our heart, if we go about our life seeking the goodness that thrives in it. Don't put off your bloom, don't you dare give up on your progress because the sun and the rain and the slowness that is found in growing may only ever be seen by you and no one else. If we're being honest, at times it may feel like the adversary is taking over like bindweed, overcrowding the good, but remember that even in adversary there are flowers to be found. Fight for what you want, keep at it, weed every day, and even if it looks like your not making progress to others that's okay, because your growth only matters to you.
Refuse to give up. Bloom wherever you are.
