Another journey to the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx on quite possibly the most perfect day of the year (a.k.a. this past Thursday). My bright and shining friend, Nicole, was visiting NYC, so we kind of met in the middle. The sun was vibrant, the flowers were blooming and delectably fragrant, the conversation was wonderful.
Roses and peonies were the highlight of the garden (in my opinion). The rose garden was like a magical fairy tale place where people should only be allowed to dance or skip through (just an idea). Nicole and I wanted to lay in the roses … then realized that would be a terrible idea. But you must understand wanting to be enveloped by such beauty! Riiiight?
Speaking of which, flowers are a reminder of the beauty in this world, including the beauty within ourselves. Often times we forget to see that and focus on the bad way more often. On the day I visited the garden, I read a quote on a fellow blogger’s site (ijourneyinsidemyself): “imagine if we obsessed about the things we loved about ourselves.” Imagine how amazing the world would be if we actually lived our lives like this! We’d all be happy and love ourselves and love everyone around us – YAY! But, I get it … it seems like a very daunting task for most of us. Remember – we are all beautiful beings, so just think of one (or 20!) thing that you love about yourself. Come on, you got this …
I love how much I’ve evolved over the past couple of years. I love my ridiculous silly sarcastic sense of humor. I love my creative abilities. I love my eyeballs. See how easy that was ;)
