Watering the flowers
Tuesday, January 01, 2019
It's a new year and I am welcoming 2019 with some words that I came across just the other day...
As an amateur gardener, with years of practice and a goodly mix of successful and not so successful in my garden, these words made a lot of sense to me. The analogy works in so many ways but let's just say it's time to focus on today and what brings me joy and hopefully sharing some of that joy with others.
Now I've decided I'm not going to spend as much time as I do in real life digging out those weeds by the roots because it seems I've already spent too much time and energy on it. So as I said in an earlier blog: forgive, forget, and move on. Forgiving and forgetting are important so that is on my agenda. I've also found that sometimes it has to happen more than once to really take hold. But perseverance pays off - and besides - you can't just water those flowers once!
