Flowers, Idealism and Gratitude Journaling

Beloved Flower Lover,

“Bricking it, bricking it, I am absolutely bricking it”… she kept muttering…

“What do you do when he is actually behaving how you have always wanted?”

“Now I might actually have to sort out wedding stationary?”

Her eyes flickered, searching us for an answer.

“Every time I had been rejected before I just renamed it, and believed it was mentoring me.  That it was a form of mentorship that enabled me to reshape my passions more deeply. I had felt that that was normal, just working hard, never really having what I wanted, but being very sincere…But now he has actually been behaving just as I wanted-heck”

We replied with a breathing pause.


“It’s a month away from the summer solstice”… we all turned away and breathed out our passion, working with flowers and doing all what we do… What had you planted in your inner self at the Winter Solstice?”

She looked tingly…….volcanic.

She looked at the flowers around us.

“Hero’s make journeys outwards and heroines make journeys inwards”….”maybe those inner seeds have now emerged”.

She seemed to tense and then melt like a falling feather, quietly touching the ground of a woodland.

“Sometimes just acknowledging that you have received all you want is the greatest act of love. Like marriage, it’s about reciprocity.”

We gave her some paper, a pen and invited her to just start writing a gratitude journal.

We paused

Where would you like to go?

Just pause

“Thank every thing you did not want to happen and notice what it has given you in return”.

What you want, want’s you too. All of you, the dark and your light.  A new normal!

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. Use flowers to help you re-discover, reveal and remember how you can still be despite challenges. Use flowers to celebrate and to embody the possibility of your heart felt desire, fulfilled. Use flowers in your life, to remind you of the beauty of your life. Use The London Flower Lover today. We invite you to stay curious in this floral universe as you explore the love in the heart. This is a floralicious world.

    Just wanted to let you know that the concept is terrific. Beauty is found in the physical flower and the emotions of the written words.

    • Thank you for your kind words J.

      We have noted how good it feels to surround ourselves with beauty, to give and recieve beauty in any form be it flowers, gifts a kind word, a gentle look.
      To be able to surround ourselves with it can come in the form of being grateful for what we already have, the friends, the family, the health. The bed we woke up in, the clean water we drink, the food we eat, the internet we can use.

      Its so funny J, we noticed in our team that we had been focusing on lack, yes us hun. We were aware of the things we did not have….you know how that goes then one of the ladies invited us to slow down and honour the very things we had, like the tools we had to create our work, the desk, the bench, even the computer that I was given to write for the team. It continued for a little while. Then each one in turn had their ‘aha’ moment….and noticed the abundance of love, peace and joy in their lives. Even begining to ‘give thank’ for the challenges.( we learnt this from Colin Tipping Radical Forgiveness guru and Ilyana Vanzant’s forgiveness diet. The interesting thing was it only became real for some of us when we started to touch the actually things that we ‘felt’ we had every reason and justification not to enjoy. SO the annoying friend, or the ….fill in the gap…..complaint.

      We then began having more morning conversations in the team ( around 10.30 ish) when we pile in and began sharing more stories about the things we feared and then rather than just leaving it, thanked the situation for growing us, and then offering ourselves self compassion( see the Tapping technique with Ms Jessica Ortner….we love her)

      All that has been turned into the magic that we share, the emotions we offer that have come from our redigestion of these classic life principles. Beauty is in the beholder and its for us to see that for ourselves. Those set backs, those disappointments, can help us to turn away form a victim mindset, by recovering our liberation. A liberation that ancient greats taught us, from Kamit, to Rumi to…..your mother and father.

      If you come here often, you may notice that it is from our own personal research, that we then have discovered it.Once discovered and re-discovered we find that it can be used to take the hand of our most challenging situation and breathe reassuring acceptance….a nother word for ‘love’. It’s that hand that we stretch out when we select a flower for you.
