Blossom in Your Own Time

This snake plant has been with me for over 30 years, traveling from location to location.  Until a few years ago, I had no idea snake plants bloomed.

Snake Plant Bloom     This one was ready.

I read that it bloomed because it was stressed.  Knowing how I dislike stress, I felt guilty so I cut the plant up and created two more potted plants.

I realized it may never bloom again because it was no longer stressed, but this year I got this new surprise!  Oh, such a sweet fragrance!

Lessons learned:  Don’t believe everything you read.  Be patient…everything blooms in its own time.   People reflect nature.

People not only reflect nature, they are a part of it.  We all have our growth and dormant cycles.  Some people blossom early and continue for a lifetime.  Others take years or decades to blossom.

Good soil, food and TLC can help to create the conditions for blooms, but no amount of pushing, prodding or education will make it happen.  We all blossom in our own time.  Be patient with yourself and others.  When the time is right, it will happen.
