Blooming in July
“Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments; but let us have patience and we soon shall see them in their proper figures.” – Joseph Addison
Patience is taught through trial, practice, resistance, resilience, rain, sun and time. The struggle, the unknowing, reminds us that growth can’t be rushed, there are no short cuts to our becoming. There’s solace in the certainty of blooming.
And in the waiting, wandering, building and breaking, we often bloom in the spring on time but sometimes we bloom in July in our own way. But bloom we do.
