"Simply Let The Universe Buy You Flowers."
I have always felt that living things should be bought with cash, and avoid using credit or debit -- money should actually change hands in order to honor the life that is being passed from one of us to the other. I don't know why, and it's not a hard and fast rule, but it's somehow more satisfying to me that way.
So this weekend, If you happen to walk by a place selling flowers (even in the grocery store) and you have a bit of cash in your pocket -- let that be 'a sign' to you (or a wink and a nod, or a smile) that The Universe wants to buy you flowers.
Allow for the ridiculousness of the fact that some random person you probably don't know wrote this post while sitting somewhere in Dallas and said this 'dumb little thing' that tickled your mind and when you walk by fresh flowers ... you'll cherish this moment with The Universe -- cherish this birth -- tomorrow is a new day for everyone... and you will feel in your pocket to see if you have a little "Green for Green" and you will just be right there in that moment and you'll feel this crazy sigh of relief that The Universe sees you and wants to buy you flowers.. You can even plan ahead and take a 20 out of an ATM just in case ;-) there are no rules (in fact I would see the fact that you took a 20 out of an ATM as your planning on allowing The Universe to buy you flowers which is even BETTER. The only 'rule' is the one that's fun: if you walk by the flowers and you have cash or a way to pay for them that is just as satisfying for you, let that be the Universe saying to you "Here. These are for You. Just because."
For EXTRA CREDIT:
After you let the Universe buy you those flowers: Look back on your life and find someone in your memory who 'should be or could be' singing the lyrics of Bruno Mars' song "When I Was Your Man" -- specifically the line where he sings:
I should have brought you flowers
And held your hand
Should have gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
-- or maybe even find someone to whom You 'should be or could be' singing those lyrics...
And when you let the Universe buy you flowers -- just once, just this once... let The Universe buy you these flowers to fill the space that was left -- the void of those flowers unbrought to or unbought by you -- that one time just one time before.
