“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” -Anais Nin

I read this quote this morning and wrote it in my journal. Thinking about all the different stages of life of and different circumstances it pertained to. I’ve read it before, but today I could feel that it was going to be my inspirational piece to write about. As I do when I’m inspired, I wait to see where it takes me throughout the day. So as I went to breakfast with my friends, Jean and Bev, this morning. As we were talking, Jean made a comment about how she didn’t understand why people hold onto grudges. That holding on to them is more painful than letting go. There I had it.

Holding onto grudges keeps us in that tight bud. Have you ever seen a bud that never got the chance to open up and bloom? It rots and dries up. If we remain wrapped within the things that cause us so much pain and sorrow than like the bud, we remain hidden within the darkness of the folds. How can we ever see the light or feel the healing warmth unless we trust enough to let go? In the process of letting go there’s this feeling of peace that comes, I know because I’ve done it many times myself in my life, and each time I blossom I open up a little bit more. I think now I’m even starting to smell a little sweeter. Lolflower
