“After all, a weed is just a plant in a place you don’t want it to be,” Miss Jane Marple, in The Murder at the Vicarage
The Constant Gardener
The gardener has an over view, a plan, a design; it is a goal that they will reach when their garden is fully realized. This design keeps them on their design path. It keeps them true to themselves and motivated. Without it, they would become lost, and the end creative result would become unrecognizable. The gardener must be vigilant in their task, or be overrun with weeds. It is so much easier to do it on a daily basis now, learning to recognize toxic behaviors in myself and others, and therefore avoiding it, or removing it all together.
Enjoying The Flowers
Once I learned to identify the weeds, or toxic behaviors of others and in myself, life began to fall into place. My life’s design started to take shape. I no longer worried about those personalities that caused discord, because they no longer affected my garden, or my life’s design. I could enjoy my life without fear. My self-esteem started to grow and life became as it should be: enjoyable. Oh, it still has its ups and downs, but they are much more manageable now. And the JOY! Did I mention that joy now blooms?
Thank you for stopping by;
I love you all, and wish you well.
