Therapy Session with Flower Bodega

STORY TIME!! Growing up I was always surrounded by flowers and plants because of my mother. She has the most amazing green thumb, it’s kind of sickening sometimes. When I was younger, she would wake me up on the weekend to help her outside in the garden. At the time, I wasn’t the biggest fan but I loved helping her with something she loved. I didn’t think that when I grew up, I would be obsessed with plants and flowers as much as I am now. For me, it has become a form of therapy. The same way music brings me peace, so does being around nature.

I’ve been really going through it these last couple of months. Personal emotions, work issues that lead to anxiety and just life. But luckily, slowly I have found that I can do things that I love for therapy. Some people seek a psychologist to help and cope but right now during COVID, I haven’t been able to take that course of action. Thankfully I found an online workshop with a flower shop called Flower Bodega.

Flower Bodega shipped her participants a bundle of flowers and plants to create a tropical floral arrangement. The bundle included: assorted palm leaves, cymbidium orchid, anthuriums, celosia and protea along with floral shears, a small ceramic vase and clear floral tape. I was super excited. The hour long workshop was full of Salsa music (to put us all in a tropical mood), laughs and Aurea was sure to make everyone feel comfortable while creating our arrangements.

At the end of the workshop, I felt joy, happiness, peace and every other synonym there is for happy. Now I have officially come full circle; I finally feel the love my mother felt when we were in her garden.

May and June were very wild months, to say the least. 2020 in all so far has been a hot mess but the last two months were mixed with crazy emotions. That being said, I wanted to share my latest playlist; where the order of the songs are just as random as my emotions and feelings were in those months. I hope you enjoy.

Hi all, this past week I’ve made it to day 60 of quarantine. WOWOWOWOWOW!!! Crazy right. I think I have learned so much of myself during this time; I’ve fallen back into hobbies that I once loved, like creating playlists. For me, music is so powerful. I grew up around music, whether it was my father playing guitar, him singing, my mother singing or my brothers and I just vibing out together to some tunes; music was always around me. I find peace whenever I tune out the world and listen to music.

For my latest playlist, I wanted a very chill vibe, something you can pretend you’re laying on a beach somewhere. I hope you enjoy just as much as I do, stay tuned for my next one.
