The word quirky is an informal term that is often misunderstood. Many times this adjective is used to try to explain unconventional things, peculiar behaviors or unexpected points of views. Quirky can be used as an endearing way to describe the people we come across in this life that are just enough out of the box to be odd but not so much so to scare us to the point of running in the opposite direction. These are the people in each of our lives that we are intrigued by our own draw to their ability to love and accept themselves because of their individual humanity; not in spite of it.
The lotus is a sacred symbol that grows out of the mud and rises from the depths of unknown spaces; so that it may share its beauty with the world around it. This happens in its own time and own its on cycle. It cannot be forced or rushed. The cycle is one that is not without its hardships and frustrations. However, when the lotus unfolds and shares its secrets with the world there is a moment of pause due to the sheer power of the energy released.
Here at The Quirky Lotus we find power in embracing these two concepts together. To learn to embrace ourselves in all of our humanity means something different for each of us. The power that comes with accepting ourselves for all that we are is not one that comes in an instant. It is a cycle where we must dig deep in the mud and make the choice to rise to the surface and share our beauty with the world around us. At The Quirky Lotus we want to help you during this journey. We do not want to define what that journey means for you. We simply want to show you that you have the power to rise and share your own beauty. We want to share with you all the tools we have found helpful along the way. We want to be a part of the world around us embracing their own humanity... in all of its muchness.
