Go Where You Bloom

Because you are
a living being — you need to always be where you can grow, thrive, and feel nourished. Lalah Delia

Many times we stay, we stay and make up reasons and rationale and justifications about why we stay, why we cannot leave, why being where we are is where we are supposed to be, about the sacrifice and the struggle.
Granted, there are some times that the lesson is in the "staying" the lesson is about patience and discipline and surrender.
And then there are times the lesson is in letting go, is in trusting and having faith and willingness to let go and to take risks
When you are getting sick all the time - it's time to be in a place where you are able to bloom
When you are sad most of the time - it's time to be in a place where you can bloom
When you are making up excuses and justifications both to yourself and others - it's time to be in a place where you can bloom
When you are escaping through food, drugs, sex, shopping, medication- it is time to be in a place where you can bloom
You are a living thing
A place with no oxygen will cause you to die
And a place to bloom includes the mental space.
I love the term "be willing" because it denotes that one is ready to give something new a chance
The Universe is self correcting and speaks to us all the time through the lives we live
There is nothing we can do to deny our blessings but there are things we can do to get in the way of them being manifested.
Peace
