Rose bush by Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham

My son and future daughter-in-law carried a rose plant in a light green pot to my side kitchen door, a gift to me on the passing of a dear friend two days before. There were only a few flowers on the green leaves but my son said the lady at the nursery said there would be up to 10 more blooms and to wait to see them pop. How sweet I thought, not sure he knew roses typically bloomed at their height in June, but loving his intentions.

The bright pink roses, my favorite colors and what I typically give to those women in my lives I love, made my heart sing with their compassionate act. Sure enough as the following two days passed, more rose buds appeared and bloomed or rebloomed. Sometimes when we don’t believe something will come to pass it does, reminding us to trust more often.

The thought of “reblooming” reminds me that in many areas of our lives, we rebloom. Think back to growing up and moving from childhood to teenager, when blooming really happens, or moving yourself up the corporate ladder to new positions of responsibility when you might have to “grow” into a new version of yourself to succeed. Even in death, we have a chance to rebloom into a stronger, better, more vibrant version of ourselves especially if we passed on with an illness taking away our physical strength.

Tracy Chamberlain Higginbotham – Inspiring women to try more sports

As a woman entrepreneur, I have “rebloomed” many times over 30 years. Starting out as an event planner for other companies, to creating my own event planning company with a larger purpose of helping connect women entrepreneurs, to moving onto bringing the idea of trying more sports into other people’s lives, I have blossomed, grown, faded, and rebloomed again in my interests. It is one big cycle of birth, growth and death with always a chance to be reborn again.

Today’s Monday Motivation is to inspire you to look and see where you are in your life right now. Are you birthing something or someone into existence? Are you simply growing stronger at what you are doing or running? Has the light or passion started to fade knowing and end is near in something you’ve loved for awhile? Or are you excited to let go of something and start anew, fresh, vibrant, and reborn into a new passion?

Today is the day to remember the rose bush that looked like it was dormant, never to produce new life (aka buds) again, and within two short days, produced 10 buds to fancy someone’s eye, proving it was still alive after all and ready to keep on thriving.
