Beloved Flower Lover,
Sometimes it feels like we are in a tiny niche market as we write about the topics of life, love, loss and flowers. Sometimes we feel so compelled to explore how to use flowers to help soothe us as we explore our inner world in this blog, that we wonder if topics like jealousy and loss are what people want to know about when they look at pretty pretty flowers.
This is even more powerful for us as we consider that we are in the wedding season here and we also know that marriages can end up in divorce.
What do people want flowers use to symbolise? Well we want them to reflect all parts of life. In fact we want flowers to validate love for our imperfection. This is self love. We give ourselves permission to continue to love ourselves despite that fear. We guess we are in the self love business using flowers. The sort of self love that reclaims the less than pretty parts of us, that we project onto others. So for us, flowers are linked to that inside journey.
Nancy Levin in ‘Reclaiming the Lost Pieces of Me’, shares the one thing that saved her life as her 18-year marriage ended–the courage to invite and welcome change, instead of fearing and hiding from it. She guides people on how to deal with change in their own divorce journey, to heal and grow
We offer this post as a guide to redirect suffering to peace, love and joy. We are curious how you have been able to use what you have found here.
