Blooming Process

“Have patience with all things, But, first of all with yourself.” – Saint Francis de Sales

The lilies bloomed late this year, but bloom they did. Sometimes we’re in full bloom on time. Other times, we are folded up tight in retreat, waiting for the blooming process to ensue. Sometimes we lead, sometimes we follow.

Perfection tells us it’s all or nothing, providing an excuse to hesitate or stop completely. Don’t. Keep moving, even in waiting. There’s a lot of “in between” time when we are amidst growth, being transformed into something new, unfamiliar and beautiful. The blooming process unfolds in its own time, for its own purpose.

Light waits patiently for us, steady and unwavering. We may bloom late, but it’s never too late to bloom, again and again. Blooming time is right around the corner, cultivated with patience, time, hope and persistence.

“The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.” – Jean Giraudoux
