I haven’t done this in a few weeks. Lately words have been hard. I look at the word and my mind goes blank. 5 Minutes may seem short but it’s REALLY long sometimes when you like to overanalyze and your mind goes blank. Trying it out this week…
BLOOM. What comes to mind when you hear the word bloom? For me…it’s FLOWERS. Tons of beautiful flowers. I can remember as kids my dad planting bulbs in the garden one winter and he said in the spring we would have TONS of pretty flowers. The winter went on and spring came…did we have flowers? Uh..no…we had green stems that came up from the ground. And every year after that for the next 5ish years these green stems would come up to remind us of the bulbs we planted that never bloomed. It was actually kind of sad because we were all so excited about the pretty flowers.
What is it about flowers that people love? I’ve never understood it to be honest. A few weeks ago someone asked me what my favorite flower was. I had NO IDEA what to say. I really don’t pay attention to the different kinds of flowers and really I think they are all pretty. Don’t get me wrong I like flowers. I think they are pretty, brighten up a room and when someone gives them to you it makes you feel special and loved and all that other mushy fun stuff but it’s just this interesting concept. Why do we give flowers to someone we love and not something else? I guess I’m getting a little bit philosophical for this post.
In the end it’s all about making others feel special. Finding out what they love and like to make them feel happy because if they are happy then you’ll be happy. And this ends the most mushiest post I have written.
