Nonetheless, I have softened a little in regard to plants in homes. Mainly because there is a difference between cut flowers and soiled potted flowers/plants. I do not have a green thumb, nor do I care to put in the work to constantly have to cater to plants. So in my research, I began to search for indoor plants that did not require much work. Ones that could survive being left alone and not bothered much(sort of like me?).
My daughter loves flowers/plants and so this caused me to rethink my no plants in the house rule. And allow her to be who she is but at the same time understand it’ll be me having to care for it. So the compromise, open the house up to plants while getting ones that can be beautiful, lively without a whole bunch of fuss.
I already love natural light, sitting either on a patio or in front of an open window writing, thinking, and doing work. So adding plants have given the ambiance of my already peaceful morning rituals added bliss.
I keep saying I’m on a journey of self-discovery and I must say that life is pretty dope right now in what I’m finding out. Finding the cure through simplicity. Just don’t buy me any flowers as a gift.
Do you have plants in your home? What types do you prefer?
