The Fresh Scent of Lilacs

Spring is in full swing when the lilacs bloom, it is one of my favorite scents. It is nothing less than pure simplicity at its best. Where I live the city planted block upon block of lilacs when the city was being developed. They are now massive shrubs towering above the sidewalk and they explode with color and aroma every May. Some residents have tried to tame them but many of shrubs are wild and unruly while being gloriously beautiful in their many shades of purple. Somewhere there is a message in these delicate blossoms. Have you ever inspected a lilac flower? There are tons of little flowerettes clustered five to seven and that cluster is part of more clusters to create the flower we cut for bouquets. They look delicate and fragile yet they are quite the opposite. Packed together they provide protection and strength to the other flowerettes, like a protective community. They are robust and resilient. Possibly I have been drawn to these spectacular flowers for more reasons than their simple beauty and aroma, possibly they have been inspiring me to embrace my wild, beautiful and unruly self!

I am on a mission to claim my wholeness, to change the legacy of dysfunction in my family and discover who I really am rather than what I have been told I am. I left the corporate world to live a slower, more simple life. I am a chicken mama, as well as a mama to four amazing humans. I am blessed to be married to someone who has supported me in my journey and been there to hold my hand when it gets crazy. I love to learn, to read, to hear peoples' stories. I love the changing of the seasons, to get lost in the woods, to soak up the sun and the moon light. Each day is a gift and I am striving to live it fully and aware of the many blessings and miracles that show up in my life. Welcome to my Journey to Wholeness, I hope you will find inspiration and share your journey along the way!
