How To Blossom and Grow Like a Magnificent Rose…

 

I would like to share something I discovered some time ago while admiring my roses… I’m not great at gardening and to be honest I take pride in doing what I do best, growing weeds, as this is the easiest… Maybe not pretty but they grow well…  Anyway beyond the weeds we have a standard rose and 10 rose bushes of 6 different varieties… One day while pondering life I came to a realisation, our life is a bit like a rose bush in many ways…

 

A rose bush starts of small and needs nurturing to grow.  Then it begins to produce buds but the true beauty lies within the rose once it is open and exposed.  Until then all you know is there is flower hiding behind many layers of protection waiting to share it’s true beauty.  There will be times that life is tough, due to lack of water, hot sun or cold temperatures and it will need to rise to the occasion if it wishes to continue growing… There is times it will need fertilising to gain that extra nourishment and there will be times that you will need to prune the excess foliage to allow for new growth.  By doing this we are allowing the rose bush to grow to its full potential and share its amazing beauty…

 

As humans we start as a baby which needs to be nurtured to grow.  This is where we hold our innocence.  As we continue to grow we begin to show our true beauty only for many the nurturing they may need does not continue.  We start to change and take on situations and emotions which lead to us carrying excess baggage, which leads to us developing invisible layers to protect ourselves from the outside world, hiding our true beauty.  We essentially we become someone we were never meant to be due to all the influences from our surroundings.

 

To change this we need to begin the nurturing process again by rising above the situation and removing the excess baggage, to awaken the passion within.  We need to remove the layers of protection we have created to share our true beauty and to do this we may need to walk away from connections we have made, we need to be open to letting past emotions and situations go.  We need to peel away these layers of protection to allow for new growth, and ultimately expose the true beauty that lies within each every one of us.

 

Now it’s time for you to blossom and grow just like a rose, as each one of us will always be a beautiful specimen from deep within, with roots to give us strength and determination, if you are willing to let go…

 

May you continue to blossom and grow, by letting your unhealthy emotions go …
