My Christmas Cactus is blooming for the second time this winter!! This has never happened before. This is new, but the cactus has no fear of the unknown. .
There is no fear that it will not fully bloom. There is no fear of risk with this second bloom. It just lives. It just soaks up the sun, drinks the water, absorbs it’s nutrients, it takes care of itself and trusts the process. Trusts that when the time is right it will bloom and when it is not the right time it will not. There is no hesitation. Only life. .
How much do we hold back due to fear? We do it to ourselves. If we stand tall and we do not blossom it just wasn’t our time, and that’s ok, but if we don’t stand tall, if we do not feed our minds, our bodies, and our souls with the essentials, if we don’t take proper care of ourselves, and remain open we can not bloom even when it is our time. .
There is not only one time to bloom. You don’t just get one shot in this life to shine. There is no “prime.” We bloom when it’s time. Again, and again, and again. Are you holding yourself back out of fear? Maybe it’s time to let go of that fear. Open yourself up to change. Taste the sun, drink in the water and allow yourself space to bloom when your time comes. .
Thank you, little Christmas Cactus for the thoughts on life. I appreciate your timing. #christmascactus at Fairhaven, Washington
