When the risk to remain tight in the bud is more painful than the risk it takes to blossom

This Anais Nin quote was never more suitable than it is for Laura Donohue-Bell of Mountain Laurel Florist in Beacon, New York. Mother of two teenage girls, and my wonderful neighbor had this to say when I asked her:
What has been the hardest part of making your dream a reality during the pandemic? Capital & stress about $tress of OMG this is now all on me!!! That’s the hardest .. the creative part is cake . Your passion is you, it’s what you have to give to the world, in it’s truest, purist form .... if you have the capital.. then no worries ... go for it . What advice would you give to someone who has a dream but is scared? Oh it can be terrifying. But if you know you have the experience and the talent, you can make it work. It’s gonna take time, but Rome wasn’t built in a day! So do it! If you can’t do it full time ... start a little at a time and when the time is right you’ll know it! That’s the beauty, it’s all in your time.
