Pink Roses + A-HA moments!

Flowers used to have such a different meaning to me... It usually went something like this: forgiveness, forgetfulness, guilt, and sympathy. These four words all came to mind when I received flowers from someone. 

Forgiveness usually came first; as if a bouquet of flowers would somehow make me forgive everything that had happened and life would go back to what it previously was. For this specific reason I loathed receiving flowers. Then, as you can imagine the other three words came following... 

I remember when important life events were forgotten by my supposed loved-ones. That's where forgetfulness and guilt somehow came together in "a bouquet form" as if that was supposed to wipe out all my horrible memories away to make room for new ones.

Sympathy flowers didn't happen so often which is a great thing if you think about. When someone feels sorry for you or some life tragedy happens then you know sympathy flowers are coming your way. 

Which it brings me to PINK ROSES. I have always been a very low-maintenance girl that doesn't really care about diamonds, expensive things, or just trendy items in general. But you know what really gets me? ROSES(pink or white to be specific)! 

I had a complete a-ha moment the other day... When I first started dating my-now-boyfriend all of the different meanings I explained above suddenly changed. And it was all due to the fact that he often brought me flowers just because. 

It took me a while to wrap my brain around why my opinions would change so quickly, but I eventually learned that you CAN receive flowers from your loved ones just because they are thinking about you, they miss you, or are proud of you. Better yet: LOVE YOU!

"Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again."
