Is an absolutely glorious day in my part of the world. The sun is shining, the breeze is floating through (to keep the flies at bay) and the birds are chirping.
I’ve spent most of this morning in my garden and I’ve been enjoying every single moment of it. I thought I’d show you a couple of pics of just one thing that makes me happy
This is where I am currently working. I have sections in my garden and I decided last year that I would create a succulent garden, I started it half heartedly and the weeds took over, so I’ve come back in to give it some love again and it’s coming up a treat. I’ve been warmed by the sun, treated to finding some earth worms and found some offcuts I can pot up to shoot. I’ve been a bit intermittent with my gardening, because, well simply life I guess. So I have now decided that life is not going to get in the way any longer. I am going to commit to being in the garden at least once a fortnight or eve once a week,I lol start with a fortnight, because I know that is manageable.
2 years ago when I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease I had a beautiful garden, but I didn’t have the energy to get out in it to keep it up. So now 2 years has passed, I’m feeling very well and I have energy to do all the things I love and it’s time to get back to my peace. This gardening spree has been a little harsh on some plants
But look at all the beautiful new little shoots coming out of this beauty now
This is going to be gorgeous when it fills out again.
It has been while I’ve been gardening this morning that I’ve come to a realisation about something. Something that is a big something for me. We have some decisions happening in our business right now, to me it feels as though everything is coming together, everything is happening in perfect timing, but I realised this morning, that that is possibly not the case for everyone who is in our business. So……..after a conversation with my beautiful husband this morning I was wondering how is it that I can help him, how is it that I can make things easier for him. And my realisation was…..wait for it……..Just Be Me. HA that basic, you say. Did I not know that already you may ask? Well in all honesty no, I didn’t know that already. I have generally questioned if what I’m doing is enough or the right thing, or what more can I do? Oh that wasn’t the response I was wanting from my helping, what should I have done better? But today I came up with the pure and simple answer of Just Be Me. This is a biggy for me as I have been on a remembering of who I am the last 6 months, and I know I am not fully there yet, but I am getting mighty close….I can feel it. So it is with relief and belief and trust and conviction that the best thing I can do for anyone including myself is to Just Be Me and that is what I am going to do, in between everything else, I am just going to Be Me and be set in that and be comforted in that.
You are who you are, whether you are spiritually awakened or not and you have the choice to be whoever you want to be. We all have free will in everything we do, we may feel at times that we don’t have choice, but in all honesty, when you look the situation full on in the face for exactly what it is and not what you have always perceived it to be you will see the choices that you have in your life. Will you take the chance in making the choice you would dearly love to make and dare to be the person you dream to be?
I hope you are having a great day.
