It is be difficult to get rid of the garbage in our lives; bad habits, relationships that ended with pain. A ritual can be helpful, to transfer the garbage into... a rose?
The ritual does not have to be long or complicated to have this symbolic value. Do it wholeheartedly, and feel the strength of your intention. At the end you feel cleansed - and your symbol will support you when you need it.
A powder pink rose now reminds me of saying good-bye to the Old, with a smile, and fully letting it go.
