“We come a long long way together through hard times and the good, I have to celebrate you, baby, I have to praise you like a should”
I am so glad to be starting a new year, I am looking forward to seeing what is thrown my way good or bad I can handle it. 2017 was the year I learned I have the strength to get through anything so I wonder what I will get from 2018.
So my first post of the year is a tip of a day to myself, for a change. As I won’t be making any resolutions this year, I don’t see the point. This year I want to remember something instead of making a resolution and that is to remember that I am a rose.
Tip of the day…. Be the rose.
My middle name is rose and I have great-grandmothers named rose, due to this the only tattoo I have on my body is two roses.
This year I have to remember people will underestimate me due to delicate appearance until the thorns prick them. The thorns are my strength, my intelligence, and my self-respect. Sometimes a petal will fall but that is ok because nothing will stop this wild rose from growing. I will need love and care and protection from the rain now and then but then the sun will shine and that’s when I will blossom and come into my own.
It’s ok to envy the beauty of another rose that’s normal, but the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. So instead of seeing another rose as the competition try to remember that they are just part of the rose garden.
Importantly the people who try to pull apart my petals and take them away are the people who don’t deserve to be in my life.
This may seem like a strange post to people, I just thought that it would be great for me to have a post I can look at to remind myself I am a strong beautiful rose. To help me when I need that boost and if it helps others as well to remember that all have insecurities and strengths as well.
Take care all
