‘Unzip the Bud’ – Day 189/365 – Triptych R2950

The expression to ‘nip it in the bud’ refers to halting it in early stages of development before it becomes a bigger problem.⁠ Expressions that are counter to nature’s way just don’t sit right with me. Buds are made for blooming.⁠
So, if it feels like there’s something unignorably bud-shaped inside you pushing from within – for goodness sake – let it bloom.⁠

So, if it feels like there’s something unignorably bud-shaped inside you pushing from within – for goodness sake – let it bloom.⁠

As Anais Anin says “and the day came when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.’ 🌺⁠
