Bloom where you’re planted. It’s a phrase that’s been tossed around and artistically rendered on prints, t-shirts and posters for years. (Founder Ilsa Manning particularly enjoys the Mary Englebright version). Yet, what does it mean?

Simply, to bloom where you’re planted means that wherever and whatever situation you find yourself, instead of being defeated from the challenge ahead of you, find strength from it. Look that obstacle in the eye and find a way to go over it, around it, through it, under it – whatever courageous path presents itself to you, take it.

While you’re daringly facing the situation you are in, you will be growing while you’re doing it. You will learn how strong you are, how smart you are, how nimble you are in the face of adversity. You will be blooming where you’re planted.

As we embrace today fabulously scented with our favorite Infinite Collection fragrance, our mantra for this new week is: I’m Blooming Where I’m Planted.

Take a deep breath of the fragrant spring air, say to yourself: I’m Blooming Where I’m Planted.

Now, get out there and conquer the day – you got this!
