This journey began a long time ago. So long ago that I cannot even remember when. Can you imagine being in the middle of nowhere and realizing that you really are somewhere? If you are lucky like me, you find that somewhere in the middle of flowers. Now, you might think I live in a very warm place that has flowers year-round and that I am able to enjoy their presence anytime. Reality though? Not so much. I live in the prairies, one of the coldest parts of Canada. You would be lucky if you can plant flowers in June or July and watch them blossom at least until the end of August. The weather changes every year so there are never any promises by nature. So what do I do? I rely on myself.
Your surroundings impact your happiness. So how do you change your surroundings really? This year in Summer, I moved away from home and that meant living in an apartment. Living in an apartment meant no planting flowers in the front lawn and watching them grow every day. No pulling out weeds in my free time. No taking pictures of my flowers every day. It sucked.The thought of it all made me very sad. So I came up with a plan! A plan to have flowers nearby every day and still admire them, care for them, and take pictures of them! A plan that is guaranteed to make me smile!
(to be continued….)
Keep smiling like flowers,
