Is there anything more soul-numbing than a broken heart? No matter how you spin it. It just sucks. There’s nothing worse .. except perhaps paying bills and doing a 9-5 that you hate. It’s a bummer and it stings. But it’s not the end of the world. Trust me, I’ve had my heart broken more times than I can count on my fingers. And each time I came out better, stronger, and happier. I realized that there’s no wand that I can wave to make the pain go away. However, there are ways to beat the blues a little quicker. You too can do this. Flowers have been tipped to be the number one aid for break-up blues. Against popular beliefs, it’s not the cosmo, and definitely not the tequila. You want to heal and not just numb the pain for a few hours.
First, this is not some spiritual mumbo jumbo. Studies have clearly shown how flowers can help patients in hospitals get better quicker, and even work to alleviate pain. So, it’s little wonder that flowers do a better job at mending hearts than a trip to Bali.
Eternal Rose. New Beginnings.
Romance is often as short-lived as a cut flower. But the beauty of an eternal rose can bring a message of hope and love that is stronger than fleeting romance. An eternal rose reminds us that we are eternal spirits, forever love. When you feel the love inside so strong, you heal - you start to attract love.
These eternal roses require no special care and can last for up to a year. These are great pick-me-ups. It’s why they are showing up more and more in Hollywood homes where more hearts are broken than the rest of the country. It’s not a magic pill but it will help you move on faster. The rose may be a symbol of love, but for someone going through a break-up, it can be a reminder that the person you need to love the most is yourself.
