Do you cut or buy flowers just for you? Not because you are having a party or to give to someone else- just for your own enjoyment?
Flowers, especially scented ones -like my branches of first breath of spring (Lonicera fragrantissima in the video)-help you to become EMBODIED. Embodiment is being fully present to your senses- feeling good in your own skin. Do flowers light up your senses? Do you enjoy looking at them? Smelling them? Touching their various textures? [Some of them taste good in salads or on cakes! Many of them are sounding boards for bees and bumblebees ;^) ]
Can you make it a practice to have a flowering plant or a vase of cut flowers in your room to see when you wake up and right before you go to sleep? See if you don't enjoy having flowers just for you! You may discover that flowers in your room begin to influence how you feel about yourself! You may discover that flowers make you feel loved and beautiful....
