There is the phrase, ‘Bloom where you are planted.’ I have come to invert it to , ‘ Plant yourself where you may bloom.’ In this way, I am not obligated to stay in soil that is toxic to my nature. Maturing means I begin to know the difference between simply avoiding that which causes discomfort and actively nurturing toward my own flourishing. This can include some weeding and composting of thought patterns, social situations, and activities. A garden in process.
