Do you have a signature flower? Mine is the Sunflower.
When I look at a sunflower I can’t help but smile! I love to have a bouquet of sunflowers on my desk or kitchen counter. One glance and immediately I am smiling! I love to give sunflowers to people on special occasions or to cheer them up. Something as simple as a flower can transform one’s day.
One day curiosity got the best of me and I l googled “sunflowers”.
“Gifts of radiant warmth, sunflowers are the happiest of flowers, and their meanings include loyalty and longevity. They are unique in their ability to provide energy in the form of nourishment and vibrancy, an attribute which mirrors the sun and the energy provided by its heat and light.

AHA! This definition resonated with me! It described part of what makes me, me!
What is it about flowers? Take the time to use your senses to analyze a flower. Look at its intricate details, its beauty, feel the smooth petals or sharp thorns, smell the fragrance, just breathe in the beauty.
Challenge: Look up the meaning of your signature flower, what resonates with you? Buy yourself a bouquet of your signature flower. Place the flowers throughout your home and workspace. Notice your mood after one gaze. Does your mood shift?
Please leave a comment: I’d love to hear about your signature flower!
