Give yourself permisson to bloom
“As my desire to bloom arrived, I flourished. No longer fearing the journey it takes to truly open and unfold. Deeply I breathe in as my breath is taken away.
I found my voice, yet even as it lay dormant in the quiet. As I stumbled in the sometimes darkness and fell, standing back up brushing off the bruises I knew I had found my way”
- Anais Nin
You know you're here to bloom, right?
For many expats, repats, migrants and global nomads this journey in which you explore and grow into who you truly are, is beautiful and crooked.
You cannot always choose the cards you have been dealt, but you can learn how to play them. Just like a flower growing through a crack in concrete, sometimes you have to make the best out of the situation and bloom wherever you were planted.
Putting yourself into situations that will trigger exploration and development can be just the nutrition you need to bloom. Connecting personal growth, personal development, self-actualization to your expatriate and repatriation experience wil help you to truly bloom.
Realising that you are not limited to your culture or society, you are not limited by your up-bringing, neither are you limited by age, intelligence or resources, the only thing that will ever limit you is your inability to allow inner growth and change to take place. Letting go of identification with old identities which are no longer congruent with the new realities you wish to experience is a very empowering act.
Allow yourself to bloom
You may be in a situation where other people are not doing their best. Instead of expecting others to change, learn to change yourself. Don't let small things get to you. Like the eye at the center of a tornado, keep your tranquility even when the world around you is swirling.
If other people are late, you still arrive on time. If others have given up, you continue to persevere.
Surrender yourself to change and growth so it doens't feel like a constant battle about how you used to think about yourself and who you are becoming. You can simply allow yourself to bloom by bringing in a deep awareness to patterns in you that no longer feel congruent to who you’ve become or who you want to become. Awareness automatically implies that there is a level of “dis-identification” now, and this brings in the space for a new intelligence to work and for a new blooming to accure.
