Beloved Flower Lover,
Struggling, dropping back, but getting back up. Struggling, dropping down, and getting back up. Struggling, dropping off and stayed up. So grateful for the whole journey.

Today might be the day to learn more about what scientists have found out about gratitude. Today might even be the day to return to thanks and collaborate with the part of us that seems so different, but is bringing so many gifts.
Professor Emmons from the University of California believes a successful gratitude practice starts with recognizing what you’re grateful for, acknowledging it and appreciating it. He recommends establishing a daily journaling practice to remember gifts, grace, benefits, and things enjoyed.
“Setting aside time on a daily basis to recall moments of gratitude associated with ordinary events, your personal attributes, or valued people in your life gives you the potential to interweave a sustainable life theme of gratefulness,”
He says that, scientists are latecomers to the concept of gratitude. Religions and philosophies have long embraced gratitude as an indispensable manifestation of virtue, and an integral component of health, wholeness, and well-being. He also says that gratitude heals, energizes, and transforms lives.
We use flowers to help with the state of mind called gratitude. To reinforce peace in the face of a challenge and to reinforce peace in when what we don’t want seems to be all we are experiencing. We use flowers as a way to acknowledge this state of mind and invite you to use flowers as part of your process for giving thanks for situations that you find challenging as well as for those that are lovely. That then moves us away from thinking that its all about just giving us what we want, when we want.
