The flowers I planted last weekend were flourishing when I went out to water them this afternoon. They have grown noticeably and look like they’re enjoying the sun and warmth. Like the flowers, I’m starting to feel newly planted in a better place, too. But I need to keep in mind that I am still putting down roots and sending up new growth, so I need to be gentle with myself.

Word-art that says "You gotta nourish to flourish."

  1. Beautiful post, Meg! I’m smiling now. Nature has always something to teach us. Love your comparison, indeed we need more compassion towards ourselves.
