My Wisteria is in full bloom, I love the blooms in the Spring...speaking of Spring...I am beginning to see signs of spring everyday more and more. Even in the weather forecast with spring rain and possible storms in the forecast for the week. Let's not talk about that.....
Last week, I received my pay it forward gift in the mail from Elizabeth at Thoughts of an Evil Over Lord. Was I ever excited when I opened the package and saw this adorable Spring garland and lovely handmade note cards from Elizabeth.
I decided to hang this adorable garland over my computer. Not only does it remind me of spring in the air, but also this has a double meaning for me....Bloom.....inside and out.
I have been struggling lately with some issues, one that has really has been a focus of my attention is the fact I sorta feel like I have lost myself somewhere along the way. No...I don't mean I am lost physically...it's just seems that over the years it is almost like I no longer see the real me, but someone else. My life has been filled with so much junk for years that my real self was lost somewhere in this shell of a person.
Life can be a struggle, especially trying to please everyone and trying to be what the people around you want you to be. You can easily lose oneself. I am ridding myself from the junk....slowly but surely....and I am re finding my real self....and it is a good feeling.....
I want to thank Elizabeth for this wonderful garland. I know you had no idea when you made this for me that it would soon be my new mantra....Bloom....just as the flowers bloom in the spring time, I know my real self is blooming once again, slowly but surely. And that is a real joy.
