Planting a Garden

Standard

Maybe, just maybe…. if I plant seeds wherever I go in life on nights like tonight when there is an endless stream of tears, the droplets will reach the ground, receive rays of sun come morning and all combine to create a magnificent and beautiful garden of flowers with every step I take. I’m not much of a gardener but It’s uplifting to think the unseen tears are not wasteful and that really I’m planting a garden. Where there is a garden, there is life. Where there is life, there is opportunity. Where there is opportunity, there I will be. 

Good night, I’m watering my flowers!

Life Gets In the Way of Living SometimesĀ 

Standard

Unfortunately, I’m a living breathing testimony of that. I’m so passionate about writing, really I am…. but yet it has been years since I published a post. Yikes! Not a proud blogger moment šŸ˜¦

To break down my title and explain more though: Yes, life, the unexpected day to day things we endure all too often get in the way of living sometimes. Living the life we may want to live anyway.

Besides moving to some corner of Australia void of other people, is there any solution? Certainly! Be intentional about “doing you boo!” Lol! But Yes! Be intentional about doing what you want to do. Devote that one hour (more or less depending) on what you find makes you spark. Beyond that, don’t convince yourself that a necessary chore is what you want to do! Washing the dishes may need to be done, but if we are really honest with ourselves is that what we WANT to do? Reserve this time for those random things you just enjoy (knitting, reading, walking, candy crush…) 

Can we all commit to giving ourselves just one hour a day? Comment below and tell me how you plan to spend your one hour.
