Beloved Flower Lover,

Over-achieving women workers and entrepreneurs, this post has been inspired by you.But first, do you recognise yourself? Look at the following poll and see.

She wasn’t born with a silver spoon. She worked hard to earn scholarships to be able to attend university. Her parents didn’t buy her a car.  She bought her own. Her parents couldn’t help her with a deposit. Instead she had helped her siblings with their mortgage.  With time, she cultivated an array of  skills to compete at work. But she only explored fulfilling ‘girly’ things when no one was not looking. She was a little curious about her friends who talked about freedom, from the inside out.

However, somewhere along the way, she over-did the overachieving. Her mind was racing and she didn’t even realize it, and she was fighting through life… just to prove that she was worth something- and she did not even know it, let alone admit to it.


It got all to much. When  her long-term marriage headed straight for divorce, after they both had a business together. She had a flash that she would end up, peri- menopausal, jaded, divorced, broke, raising children as a single mother and agressively shouting at people as she dreamt about having done things VERY differently when she was younger. And in secret  she wondered, what did the female arts offer her……. She choose a different path at this darkest hour.

Flowers offered her a very private personal compass to remind her that she could just relax….

    AMAZING! I love your posts. Thank you we have the same customer. Thank you for treating her with such kindness and love. It is what I strive to do as well. Love Briana

    • Gosh, she is at our hearts….this woman….this customer….she is us….we are her….her life matters so much….to us….to her……and she offers us a compass to open up our hearts….to heal the busyiness …to heal the hearts sadness and to soothe the heat of that overwork that makes so many of us angry because it takes us away from our feminine dreams……however this overburden in another way is an invitation that we are being offered to open up our hearts to the tools, gifts and help that is around….

      ……gosh we really felt that and just know that it is beauty that can soothe at these times…..the true beauty of knowing our real source……is infinite…..and thus offers us infininte possiblities to do things differently…..if we just allow ourselves to listen and know we are held from deep within those arms of peace…..mmmmm

      Love you Briana xxx
