As I was creating this mandala, the four "buds" that appeared made me think of opening up, the bud beginning to blossom.
Sometimes, I feel like this. That I am in a continuing state of blossoming. Over and over again to new opportunities, to new experiences, each day to a new chance to begin again.
Opening up to our passions in life, being true to them without compromise.
Finding that passion and bringing it out into the world. This is what life is for. It serves no purpose to hide one's light under a bushel (or hidden under the bed, or put onto a shelf) where no one else can share these gifts... each of us having them. They are meant to be shared, so others can see and offer up their own.
It's only fear and insecurity that holds us back and for what reason really... why should it really matter what others think, say, or feel.
Fear of judgement?
I am choosing to open up and blossom, that is my intention. To reach out, share, feel what I feel and give back.
What is your passion and how do you share it? or what is holding you back??
