What is a Bloomer?

A Bloomer is a woman who…

♥ has come to full maturity

♥ embraces her age (age is just a number)

♥ looks after herself

♥ loves herself

♥ is self-compassionate

♥ encourages and supports other women

♥ accepts herself

♥ is true to herself

♥ strives to be her best

♥ makes the rest of her life the best of her life

♥ is resilient — bounces back

♥ nurtures herself

♥ can say no — sets limits

A Bloomer lifestyle is one which is

♦ balanced — work, play, rest/body, mind, soul

♦ active

♦ nutritionally sound

♦ fun — laugh, love, live, dance

To Bloom is to strive towards greatness. To Bloom is to flourish.
