This exotic flower represents this New Year to me. It's open, lush, sensuous, fragrant and waiting to be dived into.
At its right sits a bud: it's still closed, without colour or fragrance. Hard to believe that this flower was once like that.
But that's how it spent a whole season, being watered with love, fertilised with intention: its nature honoured.
Same with us, we already have that flower within our self, no matter how closed and colourless we might have become.
So, rather than making harsh, self punishing resolutions this new year, why not honour, love and fertilise what is already there, and make way for the flowering of who we really are.
Blessings all, Denise
