The BloomNow Journal
As a military spouse of nearly 14 years, I’ve heard the phrase “Bloom where you are planted” more times than I can count.
What I realized over the years is that encouragement comes with a couple assumptions and a dash of added pressure. It assumes that you have the tools to thrive everywhere you go and that it can “just happen.” You know what? That's not how it happens.
Blooming is the result of consistently making choices that point you towards a more adaptable, joy-filled you. One who can bend rather than break, makes the best of any duty station, chooses pursuing joy rather than expecting happiness and, perhaps most importantly, one who models that resilience for her family.
BloomNow is about marrying self-care with intention, accountability and community in a fun way that meets you right where you are.
