In Full Bloom
Every flower goes through a process before one can see it in full bloom. A seed MUST EXPERIENCE a cycle and process to blossom into a flower. The seed experiences darkness and dirt after being buried in the ground, but the end product is a beautiful flower worthy of display. For the last few months, and the reason I have been absent, I have been experiencing a seed growing phase.
Like the seeds, there was a period of dormancy and complete and utter darkness around me. I have experienced days where getting out of bed was more than a task; it was this physical pain and ache I felt deep inside my bones! I have had days where motivation and the prospect of keeping my dreams alive seemed impossible. But all the while, a little inkling of hope, a drop of water on soul you could call it helped with the germination of my buried and seemingly forgotten seeds.
My seeds, whether my gifts or dreams, each unique and precious in their own right have to BLOOM. I am convinced that my dreams of being a magazine editor and a publication owner must reach fruition. In every area of my life, my seeds are destined to bloom into the majestic flowers I know they will be. I refuse to accept or entertain a dead seed, that can not add or bear the life force within.
In my place of dormancy, I hid from the sunlight and water around me. The chlorophyll and energy meant to feed my creativity, my drive, and my spirit depleted. But with renewed hope and new outlook on my situation, I am ready to bloom and use my seed experience to be that flower God called in His Garden. I know with time, dedication, and a willingness to allow the process to happen, my seeds will bloom into flowers that will help fertilize someone else's seed.
