Why Gilded Lily. According to Merriam Webster’s dictionary when something is gilded it has been covered in gold. In Folklore the Lily has been associated with rebirth, motherhood, love, and luck. A few weeks prior I had met an intuitive that told me that there was something with me and the word” golden”. So when I came across the idiom “Gild the Lily “I knew it would be the right name . “Gild the Lily” means to take something already beautiful and cover it in gold. Like many women I often forget my natural beauty , but I want to be golden which to me means to feel my best in all facets of life. I found myself recently feeling unsettled in different parts of my life. I write and have done so for a long time, but rarely share. I would journal but sometimes I let my thoughts fade. As I align with my true self on this journey of self awareness and discovery I wish to grow, inspire others ,and be inspired.
This blog was created as a way for me to share my thoughts and feelings along the way . I bring the perspective of a woman, mother , sister, lover , and friend. I hope to be an inspiration to any who decide to read what I write.
