“Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.”
Veronica A. Shoffstall
For a long time I think that I wanted others to make me feel beautiful, to tell me what my passions were, to hold my hand through life and to inspire me throughout my journey. But I think it is important for all of us to realize that no one can do these things for us, we must do them ourselves. We are responsible for who we become and the choices we make as well as for lighting our own inner fire.
So take the time to take care of you and make yourself happy. It’s important to love and nurture the most important relationship in your life, the one with yourself. Looking for your soul mate? Look in the mirror! I got a massage today, took a little time for me, and I feel great! We need to pamper ourselves from time to time instead of focusing on taking care of others. I always buy fresh flowers for myself and have them around my house. Why wait for someone to bring you flowers and plant your garden when you can do it yourself!
I took this picture in Croatia. This rose bush was at a vineyard we visited and it was absolutely gorgeous!
