life: blooming where you are planted

we were blessed to purchase our first home a few years ago and one of the many reasons why we chose our current house was because of the garden in the back.

We’ve since taken up gardening, and by we I mean my husband.

In our 3.5 years of living here, we’ve planted cucumbers, spinach, onions, corn, lettuce, tomatoes to name a few and we’ve been quite successful in harvesting our …. harvest and the reason for our success was the soil!

Which leads me to today’s post.

Blooming where you are planted.

I mentioned on my latest instagram post how much I'm loving all the sisterhood and the genuine empowerment of women supporting women and how refreshing it is.

And for some reason I got to thinking about in order for women ( or anything for that matter) to bloom, there are environmental circumstances that need to be met.

If you’re having a hard time blooming where you are planted, consider a few things:

  1. soil: Fertile soil provides plants with additional life-supporting nutrients. Plants not only absorb water, but also many other nutrients from the soil with their roots. Fertile soil provides plants with lots of additional "food" that supports plant life. How fertile is your soil?

  2. water : who is watering you with words of encouragement, But most importantly are you watering yourself with words of encouragement, what you say and what you think of yourself matters, Nothing blooms in negativity. Speak life!

  3. light: plants need to be exposed to light. Be sure to surround yourself with plenty of individuals who do that for you, and remember to do the same for others.

Here’s to blooming !

Write soon.
