flourishing (v.)

  1. to be in a vigorous state; thrive
  2. to be in its or in one's prime
  3. to be successful; prosper
  4. to grow luxuriantly, or thrive in growth, as a plant

flourish (c.1300) – "to blossom, grow," from Old French floriss-, stem of florir, from L. florere"to bloom, blossom, flower," from flos "aflower" (see flora). 

This blog tends to the concept of self growth and personal success whether it be in the simplest of ways like being crafty, or going for a walk in nature, or training our mind into positive thought, or calming down with a good book. Like peonies, we bloom bigger and more beautiful as the years go on. This is about not remaining stagnant and about always aiming to be a better you. 

About the Author

25 years old. Mama to Maddox. Word weaver. Lover of love. Coffee addict. Psychological science student. 

A woman of curious nature, my name is Shayna. I am wild & reserved. Humbled & proud. Quiet & clamorous. Strange & familiar. I live in the trees of New England typing away as lifestyle blogger. You can always find me with a coffee cup in one hand and a book in the other.

Blogging since 2005, I’ve had an innumerable amount of blogs on a vast number of platforms. Finally, I’ve found one to call home: Flourishing. This blog is a piece of myself I extend to you.
