Titled after my favorite read, by Rupi Kaur, I offer up inspiration from ‘The Sun and Her Flowers‘. Perusing floral arrangements at Chelsea Market is what aroused a spark in me. I have read Kaur’s ‘Milk and Honey‘ a million times over―finding myself on a number of pages. When I began exploring her latest book, I discovered a true connection with Kaur’s poetry. Her synopsis on the aforementioned states: “This is the recipe of life, said mother. As she held me in her arms, as I wept. Think of those flowers you plant in the garden each year. They will teach you that people too must wilt, fall, root, rise―in order to bloom.” A lesson all too familiar.
You do not just wake up and become a butterfly. Growth is a process.
I could site word after word of each chapter I have related to. “You do not just wake up and become a butterfly. Growth is a process.” There are 248 pages of reminders, lessons, and epiphanies. And now, every time I look at flowers, I reflect on the stages of evolvement―what we must go through in order to flourish. This post is not just about what I am wearing, but about how I have grown to get here. You may not see it, but I am a different person. I may dress the same, and have the same hair, but I am not who I used to be. They say, we grow through what we go through, and that my friends, is true. I hope you enjoyed this post, and if you’ve read ‘The Sun and Her Flowers’, I encourage you to share your favorite lines below. Thank you so much for stopping by!
