We often take the wonderful gifts of nature for granted. Mother Earth, has provided us with the most beautiful “jewels” that come in various colours and smells. Psychologically, we associate with most flowers for they tend to change the mood we are in; indeed one simple act of presenting a loved one with a flower, can turn their ‘rainy’ day into a ‘sunny’ one. Why do we neglect these glorious beauties?
Some cultures take flowers seriously. They’re more than just some decorations in your room or garden additions. They represent beauty, energy, purity, and symbolize love, affection and happiness.
Considering how much terror, hatred and cruelty this past year has given us, it’s only wise we turn towards things that make us feel happier. We need to act different in order to change our worrisome and negative personalities into pure kind ones. Call it meditation or prayer; it doesn’t matter. One of the things you need to do, is simply pick a flower and give it to somebody you care.
In 1969 in Woodstock, love saw no barriers and the message against wars was evident. It was also obvious that their signs and faces were covered in flowers, literally. But should we remember the purest things on Earth only when we feel the anger and evil around us? TBR urges you in 2017 to make room for more love in your lives and it all starts with gratitude.
This is why, we call January our gratitude month. A month to pick your most favourite flowers and create a bouquet for the person/people you love or even strangers on the street.
Make a change today, will you?
