Beloved Flower Lover,
“Guess what just happened to me?”
Breathless, one of the girl’s who had just popped out the to local supermarket for some afternoon snacks had come back with a big excitable smile and a bunch of white, purple and pink gladioli which she said had been going really cheap. Our eyes looked at their quality and then we carried on with our work.
A kind sigh filled the air.
What? came back as our plummy reply
“A lady saw me looking at the gladioli and began telling me that she has stopped smoking.”
She was still breathless, and excitable from running back into the studio. This created a beautiful sound as she continued to describe all this action to us in her honeyed London tone.We carried on with our tasks and chuckled.
“She stood behind me and had made me jump. She quickly said sorry in a very fruity and plummy voice and then explained to me that she was on Day 12 of her non smoking. She said that she was in the supermarket to buy herself flowers to inspire herself…She saw the way I was studying each pack of gladioli and recommended that I take the fuchsia pink.”
“It was so funny. I did not tell her that I work with flowers all day. We carried on caressing the flowers and selecting the best ones. Looking at which packs were freshest. Then she said that she had used flowers over ten years ago to help her to drop weight from 15 stones to her current 9 stone, and now she was doing the same to help her to appreciate herself for coming this far with her non smoking.
” Don’t you think that’s a sign girls?… She was following her joy guides”
Our heads had been down. Working for so long, that maybe we too had failed to notice, or spot the beauty of the day.
We thought about it and smiled.
“Wow, check that out. She went on. There was someone out there who was acknowledging herself using the natural beauty of flowers. Was that not our message too?” Her arms reached up into the sky.
“Rather than neglecting herself, or being unrealistic about what it takes, she was appreciating just where she was today.”
This is just our story, but we saw an everyday woman who had stepped away from her past troubles and into her bright future . She was lighting up her own path with flowers.
So we have questions for you, but before that we wanted to say this…
Being in service, sometimes we need to know that we are needed and she reassured us that everyone has a real inner guidance that tells them exactly what to do to. The bigger message for us was this.
There is no need to rescue. No need to sacrifice oneself. No guilt to say oxygen mask over self first. It’s not taking away from anyone else.
We smiled as we looked back over a very small portion of our work and celebrated it’s value to the world.
What makes you happy?
What are you doing when you like yourself the most?
What are the six things that you cannot stop doing because you enjoy them so much?
Write it down and if maybe share with us in the comments. Just by doing that helps so many others who pop by.
You want to help others in the world. Then don’t be unhappy. Do what makes you happy. That is your purpose.
Coming from your true inner happiness and using that to face your problems is your way of serving us all. That service will then leave a sweet fragrance on your own hands as you perfume our lives with your gift.
We offer you our joy, our happiness, our beauty. And our flowers are our love offering!
The London Flower Lover
