Cherry Blossom Meaning in Japan( Borrowed from http://www.enkicharity.com/cherry-blossom-meaning.html)
The “Sakura” trees in Japan are highly esteemed. Japan’s samurai culture admired the cherry blossom due to their short-lived lives and also used them as a representation of blood drops. It is a symbol of simplicity, spring and innocence.
Symbol of hope: The season of cherry blossom corresponds to the calendar and fiscal years in Japan. This marks the start of new beginnings like a pupil’s first day in school or a person’s first day at work. The intensity and liveliness of the cherry blossom gives the warrant for anyone to dream and hope for big things in the future and to be optimistic.
Symbol of humility: The blooming period of cherry blossoms are short, leading to an instantaneous flourish and sudden death. In the Japanese culture, the flower serves as a reminder of mortality and humanity knowing that the life of a human being can end anytime just like the flower. The cherry blossom exemplifies this human condition, making people realize that life is short and that they should live it well.
Everything in life has its place, and a purpose to be. I am a woman of grace, love, hope, and harmony. I give unto mother nature as she gave unto me. The soul of each living thing speaks to my heart as I speak to loved ones. As the cherry blossom blooms with such pretty and patience I grow within time. Life is as good as you make it, even when its not something you think you can endure. Live your life as if today was your last day. Love as if you couldn’t love another.
