The JourneyWELCOME THE BLOOM

June 6, 201743

Only YOU can march into your future with the security and willpower that is needed to take you to the next level. Only YOU can navigate the murky waters of life and come out the other side happier and healthier. Only YOU are responsible for the matters of your heart and how you want to settle them.

Listen; fatigue, burn-out, lack of inspiration, wanting to just sit quiet for a moment…I’ve been there. I was there not too long ago! I needed to experience what I don’t want in my life in order to embrace what I want for me and for those that matter to me too. Ultimately, that is love, happiness and success.

I’m not fooling myself that it will happen tomorrow, but I’m welcoming my season to own my bloom because no one else can! If I don’t make strides towards a future I’ve envisioned for myself and for my family then I’m fooling myself. Welcome your bloom or don’t.

That’s up to you and that’s something you’ll have to live with. Where are you in your season of bloom? Are you withered and worried? Are your thoughts and feelings scattered like the petal fall of a flower? Are you ready to bloom, thorns and all?

Thank you for following my Lady in Bloom series. I can’t wait to take you through the next phase of my journey as I immerse myself in introspection.

Why should I be unhappy? Every parcel of my being is in full bloom. (Rumi)

    Thanks Janet for sharing this,reminds me also that for one to grow,sometimes they need to get out of their comfort zones,no matter the uncertainty ahead. I tried this before and I won’t shy from taking another step in order to bloom

    You can’t believe how your journey is impacting me. This series has been especially awesome.
    Looking forward to the next phase. My life too is sort of moving to a new phase and I can only hope that the deliberate choices I have been making will pay eventually.
    Asante Janet. Much love.

    This series has been so real to my life, each series spoke to my journey. Amazing. Thank you for the reminder that I am a flower and even when I wither and drop my petals and seeds I can sprout again and BLOOM, if I put my heart and mind to it.
    This series has spoken to me in times I needed to hear those positive vibes. Be blessed. Aluta Continua!!!

    Good work. But I think you can do better with your blog outlay to be more reader friendly and fun. while checking the responses you are not sure they belong to which post and you have to confirm and reconfirm

    AWESOME! I just started following your blogs and they’re quite inspiring.Am 22, just cleared with campus and currently on my first official job as a receptionist in a hotel.The new experience so far is exciting and scary to some point with thoughts like “Will i mess up?” but with empowered and accomplished women like you, i know I’ll make it. I also love that you can balance all ; family, career and following your own path and with that you’re one of the people i can look up to.CHEERS AND KEEP ON KEEPING ON!
