“Nip it in the bud.” What does this mean? To cut off something that is growing before it has a chance to blossom. Are there not times when you are on a certain trajectory and something happens to thwart you? You may feel slighted. You may feel insulted. You may become defensive. Pause, dear one. Perhaps you are being set up by a higher set of circumstances for your own good. Perhaps the way in which you were unfolding was not in the best interest of you and those around you. At times it is good to do a bit of pruning. Does not a rose bush become even more full when you do some judicious nipping of the buds?

You are so very loved.
