This quote resonates in so many different ways for women.
For me, my ‘tight in a bud’ can be about isolating myself, out of a need to take the pressure off, when I am feeling overwhelmed by commitments. Sometimes this can be real self-care but most of the time it is running away, and often letting others and myself down.
Blossoming has been learning to say ‘no’, to not succumb to a fear of missing out, or feel pressured by other people’s needs, or simply taking on too much out of sheer habit. This has allowed more spaciousness into my life and in this space I am blossoming in many meaningful ways. How does your ‘tight in a bud’ and your ‘blossom’ show up these days?
