☆ bloom （健康的に）輝く
There is an American artist named Mary Engelbreit who became famous for her greeting cards. I didn’t actually know her name, but I recognized her art work when I was searching for the person who said, “Bloom where you’re planted.” This quote is very famous (apparently it is originally from the bible) however, I never knew that it was Mary Engelbreit who made it famous with her artwork.
Can you imagine what “Bloom where you’re planted” means? I think it means that no matter where you are in life, don’t wait until things get better, or until you have more time, money, English skills, etc. Now is the time to realize your dreams, and you can do it right where you are now. Is there an English book you’d like to read, somewhere you’d like to visit, or a job you’d like to apply for etc, but you’re waiting until your English is “better”? Don’t wait – bloom where you are planted, and go for your dream now!
By the way, if you’d like to see the art work of Mary Engelbreit, you can search on Amazon Japan, or go to her web page: http://www.maryengelbreit.com/
