Are you a Late Bloomer?

Late Bloomer (noun) – a person who finally gets their shit together.

Every one of us is a Late Bloomer. The secret to blooming is not found in precocious abilities or early accomplishments. Nor is it found by eliminating struggle or pain (an impossible goal).

We bloom when we finally give up our struggle to meet expectations – whether imposed by others or by ourselves. We bloom when we finally realize that the yellow brick road is no more magical than the road leading to the local market. We bloom when we can cook a meal without thinking about having to wash the dishes later, and when we can wash the dishes with a smile. We bloom when we give ourselves permission to bloom.

How about today?
