ESSENCE

Some things take time for you to appreciate its true value.

Late bloomer or not, a flower is admired for its beauty. Yet, the fragrance in its essence is what’s coveted.

Then there are the resilient flowers. Specially chosen to withstand the rigorous stages in its short but delicate life. They’re left to wither away and at the end of it all, they’re steeped in a scalding hot environment. Just when you think it has reached the end of its time, it blooms.
An indelible act. Pleasing to the eye, the palate and more importantly, soothing to the soul.

Perhaps, you and I are much like these resilient flowers. Forcing our fragile petals open will only cause us pain. No matter what life throws our way, be it a dry or scalding hot environment, we must be patient.

Our time will come where remaining in a tight bud would be more damaging than what fear would cause in holding us back. That’s when it will be our time to bloom. It will be liberating as we exude the intangible fragrance of our essence.
