Up here in the Pacific Northwest (also in California too) Succulents are very prolific.
I have a love affair with them! (wish this was mine but alas not..)
Every year at the garden show I buy some.
Then go home and remix and repot the ones I already have.
My thought today is... why not use them in the wedding?? huh? Kieri? Lauren? does this sound (look) beautiful and elegant and personal?
|my favorite- in a pretty red or colored glass.|
over at myselfcareblog I found a great analogy
Living a Succulent Life.
A few facts about succulents we might take a few lessons from:
1) Succulents are built to survive in tough conditions.
2) They need water, so they absorb it as often as it is available to them.
3) During times of drought, the succulent draws upon its water reserves.
4) Despite the stress of extreme conditions, the succulents actually thrive and become even more brilliant in conditions that make other plants wither and die.
YOU are also built to survive tough conditions, but you need to make sure that you are taking good care of yourself -nurturing your body and soul and getting your physical, emotional, mental, volitional, spiritual and social self care needs met with some regularity. Taking small steps each day to build your reserves will prepare you to be more brilliant and contribute better when you find yourself in a trying moment with your children or situations that call for your superwoman strength.
