Flowers make us happy. It’s impossible to look at flowers and not feel good, or at least better.
Feeling good is a choice. We can choose what we focus on. One of the best things we can do for ourselves is to make a conscious choice that no matter what we do each day, we’re going to look for things that make us feel good. Once we make that commitment to be in charge of our own well-being, our energy shifts, we feel happier and lighter, and our lives flow better.
There are a lot of tools to help us feel better, flowers are just one of them. Others are spending time with our pets, being out in nature, or listening to a favorite piece of music.
On this rainy Monday, I decided to bring nature inside and treated myself to a bouquet of beautiful tulips. They make me feel lighter every time I look at them. And beyond the window, I can see the Dogwood tree in my yard just waiting for the sun to come out before bursting into full bloom. Life is good.
Brighten your life or someone else’s with some flowers today!
