As I tend to my garden this morning it seems very clear how all growth, whether it be plant or human, is much the same. I find this all quite fascinating as I reflect on the similarities.
Planting new seeds and seedlings, I care and nurture these precious new sprouts as I would a baby. It dawns on me that I also tend to take time to feed my new ideas and inspirations. I love growth and for me it is a big part of my life. I’m always growing, becoming more.
I believe this is part of a healthy and happy existence.
What happens when we become stagnant and stale?
What happens when we stop growing?
What happens when we fail to tend to our relationships and all that has meaning to us?
Just as our gardens will wither and wilt, so will our ideas, inspirations and relationships.
I must continuously weed my garden to make room for growth and expansion of the plants and foliage which I have chosen to enjoy. Weeds are not necessarily a bad thing; they are simply not what I choose to nurture.
It is just as vital for my own personal growth to weed out unwanted emotions and limiting beliefs that are no longer serving me.
Do you find that sometimes you feel stuck?
Do you need to begin to take care of yourself?
Are you having a hard time letting go of old pains or old ideas of who you should be?
Is it time to weed your emotional garden to make room for new ideas and growth?
Is it time to really take charge and live your life purposefully?
What do you want to experience in your life? When is a good time to begin to live the life you want? Are you waiting until life settles down, are you waiting for tomorrow, or next month, or next year?
What is stopping your from living the life you want to live right now? How can you begin to plant new seeds and weed out the old, outdated ones?
Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
You have heard this before, but really think about it. Yesterday is gone, done and over. All the yesterdays are gone, done and over. Today really is the beginning.
A friend sent me this quote this morning and I would like to share it with you as you may be beginning to consider today as a new beginning:
If you want to live the life you came here to live, FEEL into it.
Turn off the past. The lessons you learned there are over.
Clear that canvas and paint that which you want to see now.
I invite you to dig out your journal and write down on a fresh new page some of the things you would like to experience in your life.
What do you really want?
How can you begin to plant new seeds to create the life you truly desire? What do you need to weed out to make room for new happier experience?
Think of these things as beautiful flowering plants.
What is the first step to creating your harmony garden? I’d love to hear your thoughts, please leave a comment below and share!
