Accept the compliment- you are gorgeous

Beloved Flower Lover,

Men, women, we so notice your talents, and just want to thank you for reading this blog and giving us feedback.  Yeah…. We thought about this… the Giver archetype is elevated and celebrated in our culture while the Receiver is almost wholly unknown. You have undoubtedly heard the phrase, “It is better to give than receive.” And while giving is important and should be encouraged, the reality is that every giver has a recipient. We can’t be the giver all of the time, for it is necessary and natural to receive as well as to give.

Yesterday, a client really got one of our team into a tizzy. She was upset, he critised her design and wanted a new version by the time of his arrival. In two hours time. Her designs, always innovative and amazing seemed to go dull as she tried to go safe with the design. Then a friend of her’s called and guess what, rather than give advice and help like she always does, she stopped, whispered that she needed help and was open to the help of her friend who guided her into calming down,  and in fact welcoming the gift in what the male client was saying. She even  allowed herself to recall all her previous brilliantly stunnng designs. As she listened, she softened, breathed out deeply, calmed down deeply, got really quiet, even to a point of silence and before the end of the chat, knew exactly what she could do and executed another of her simply fabulous  and beautiful designs.

That was a real powerful example for us. She is such an example of some of us in our team. really good at giving and now it was her turn to recieve help. To open up, to recieve and she did.

Recieving flowers from yourself is a powerful mindset, just welcoming that idea opens you up to allowing more beauty, joy, happiness and pleasure into your life. It welcomes so much more into your life. Just notice what that all says to you, and notice what you will allow yourself to recieve today. It will probably open up other stimulating ideas for you.

About Thelondonflowerlover

Welcome to The London Flower Lover. We are florists who create floral collections to tell your real life story. With colour and texture, we take floristry into an entirely new direction based on the challenges and joys of your life. Offering what we call 'heart based floristry' we use style, fashion, and life situations and merge them with heart based lifestyle support. This inspiring blend creates so much more for those who love flowers. Using flowers in the traditional way of course, but always using flowers to open up a floralicious conversation about relationships of all kinds. We are a sort of work in progress of compassionately confirming how we are already on the inside, the love we want to see out in the world. That is mission of The London Flower Lover. So saying yes to recognising that is at the heart of this blog and using flowers to honour that inner world is how we use the beauty of giving and receiving flowers. This blog is your blog. It's as much about cultivating your heart, as it is about enjoying the physical beauty of flowers. It offers story, poems and video to reflect the life you actually live whilst showing beautifully inspiring collections of flower designs. Hand-tied bouquets, arrangements and more. All this with sought after tips from well established experts on how to keep a happy heart. This is what makes The London Flower Lover unique and magical. Yes, and that's how we make the difference that we do. When life looks, feels, or sounds challenging, we offer a sanctuary that you may dip into. A well of refreshment and strength that you may draw from. Sharing what others have found to be successful ways of being happy in the face of challenges, whilst letting flowers do the talking when we have no other way to interpret what is going on.
