Time to Bloom

If you're in need of a little inspiration,
visit Rebecca and her friends at Postcards from Paradise.

Rebecca asks "How is Spring awakening you?"
and talks about the challenges and burdens
we all encounter on our walk through life.


And I realized that after having my heart broken
into a million pieces a few years ago,
I've let it harden so it's not as vulnerable.



I think it's time to let it bloom.




Wish me luck!

We all want to protect our tender hearts, being vulnerable is scary but can also be 'blooming' beautiful as are your images!

Good Luck

Meri,
What a delicate and sweet smelling fragrance I sense wafting in the breeze. A beautiful and tender heart has opened its hardened protective core to soft Spring rains, and the fragile blooms of vulnerability and unguarded feeling are making their way upward in the soft earth. They are wholly lovely to behold. I affirm their growth and offer them nurture.
xo,
Noelle

Enough
These few words are enough, if not these words,this breath...
If not this breath, this sitting
This opening to the life we have refused
again and again until now. Until now.
In this moment of epiphany
This opening to the life we have refused
again and again
until NOW

Meri, this is such an imaginative metaphor. You heart turned to stone is able to soften and open on the first day of spring. I am so happy for you because there is so much in there: layers and layers of feeling in those shades-of-pink tissue. Carry this gentle heart with you always.

Mari,
I can relate to having been brokenhearted, after being single until age 47. I applaude you for your readiness to open your heart to the possibilities that spring alone can offer!
