Hortensias or hydranga bloom all year long in Antigua Guatemala


This particular flower (which most people in the US call hydranga) has an additional lesson for me. You can find them in different colors — white, pink, lavender, and blue. But they are all the same variety. What makes the difference is the composition of the soil they are in, specifically how acidic. It’s a good reminder for me that the way I “bloom” is in large part a result of the environment I put myself in. Surround myself with things that nurture and slow me down and I will have a more peaceful mind and soul.

How are you living your life? Do you have enough pauses to slow you down?
