Weekend Wisdom: Blooming

I chose “Blooming” for today’s Weekend Wisdom in honor of Grief Care Place’s 13th annual Blooming Brunch happening today. My friend Lisa Ryan is this year’s speaker and my friend Katherine Miracle was last year’s speaker. It is a lovely luncheon benefiting a good cause.

Enjoy these quotes and may at least one cause your heart and soul to bloom.

And the day came when the risk [it took] to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. 

Anais Nin

People deal too much with the negative, what is wrong….Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom. 

Thich Nhat Hanh


As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.

Denis Waitley

I hope you will go out and let stories happen to you, and that you will work them, water them with your blood and tears and you laughter till they bloom, till you yourself burst into bloom.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes
