"No Mud, No Lotus"
- Thich Nhat Hanh
The LOTUS has been a strong archetypal symbol throughout my growth as a woman and mother. I believe we are all lotuses, purposefully floating together in this pond called life. The muddy water, although dark and scary, is a necessary containment to build and deepen our inner strength. By loving and being our most authentic self, we hold the power to rise through the mud and bloom towards the sunlight - becoming who we are always meant to be.
