If someone would have told be three years ago that I would own a business in 2021, I would have laughed. I was working a job I really didn't love , and had no passion for. I had no real hope or desire to go up the corporate ladder. I wanted to be my own boss. I was sick of working to make someone else rich. I was very thankful for my job because it paid the bills.
In May of 2021 , I purchased a business that I absolutely love. This reason why Bloom's Flower Shop has the tag line, Live life in full bloom. Living life in full bloom means living with hope and purpose, with imagination and vision in a way that honors the Earth, the spirit and one another - quote by Elizabeth Murray.
Since owning my own business, I feel completely different. I feel alive and I have never felt better. I lost sight of myself and felt like I had no real purpose. Never loose sight of yourself . Every day we must live with hope and a purpose . Imagine all the good things in life that you want. Imagine it, envision it and achieve it. Don't be afraid to dream and use your imagination. Be the good that this world needs. Live with purpose , don't just live. You were put here for a purpose, find your purpose.
We need to honor, respect and be thankful for all the good things in life and the special people in our life . There are so many things I am thankful for. You never know how great your support system is until you buy a business during a pandemic. It was a very long drawn out process and required so many documents. Some of the documents I have never heard of and I truthfully almost gave up. I didn't because I really wanted to own the business and if you know me I am NOT a quitter. This experience really taught me I can do anything and asking for help is ok. Everyone needs a little help now and then.
Most of all I am thankful for my sons, my husband, my friends , and my family who have been my biggest supporters. I am thankful that no one laughed at me when I said ' I think I want to buy Bloom's Flower Shop". They all supported me 100% and I am so thankful for them. I am not sure what I would have done with out my husband during this process, he is my rock and my best friend. My boys are my world and everything I do is to make a better life for them.
I am so very thankful for my customers who support my dream and my small business. Without you there would not be a Bloom's Flower Shop. Thank you for supporting us all these years and through several owners. We truly have the best customers.
I am thankful for the earth that produces the beautiful flowers I sell at my shop. The flowers are so beautiful and uplifting, you cant be in a bad mood with them around you.
I thank God , l wake up each morning . I have been blessed with more than I deserve. Also, I have been very blessed with the most amazing employees. Employees that I consider family.
Take advantage of new possibilities , take a chance you never know, don't be afraid to hear no because what if you hear yes. Life live in full bloom.
