Japanese idioms

Oubaitori

Bloom at your own time.

A Japanese idiom for four flowers that bloom in spring: cherry, plum, apricot and peach. Each flower blooms at its time reminding us that we own our own journey and should not judge others’. Acceptance of own’s and others’ growth and path away from comparisons.

Everyone blooms differently, all beautifully.
