The Power of the Late Bloomer

When the Fate Line starts in the middle of palm and climbs upward you catch on to responsibility, work and commitment later in life, hence called the Late Bloomer. This is a strong indicator that you were able to play as a child and remained a free-spirit into your young adult life. At some point your rocket of direction was ignited and you chose a particular direction to excel.

Be true to yourself

If you own this design and you notice your high achieving graduating high school friends taking flight for college, trade school, art school or starting to take the band on tour, and you’re not, please know, there’s nothing wrong with you. Enjoy your wandering. One day you’ll feel the lightning strike and, on your way, you will fly, as the bird you’re meant to be.  In the book, Johnathon Livingston Seagull, Johnathon, the seagull who broke out of conformity said, “Your only obligation in any lifetime is to be true to yourself.”

 

Stay off the early bloomer conveyor belt

Rich Karlgaard, author of Late Bloomers, addresses what it means to be a Late Bloomer in today’s world obsessed with early achievement. In a blog post he says, “What late bloomers need to do is get off the early bloomer conveyor belt and find a new path of discovery.” Karlgaard sites a number of Late Bloomers that found their way and are in perfect positions for them, many quite successful by societies view.

 

The Late Bloomer is flourishing toward what’s to come

While parents may think their young adult is floundering between interests and friends, it could not be more opposite because the Late Bloomer is actually flourishing toward what’s to come. I advise parents to be patient and supportive of his or her natural path. There is no need to push the young one onto the early bloomer conveyer belt which will certainly lead to disappointment. The day will come for this youth to take bloom on his or her supreme quest. This is the power of the Late Bloomer.
