Gardens need to be tended and fed to grow and be healthy; just like us. If we leave them too long without caring for them, weeds pop up – pretty quickly, and BOOM, all those pretty flowers don’t have the space to bloom. They get choked out or they go dormant. The same happens with people and families. We have to love each other AND ourselves in order to grow and bloom. It takes work. Yep, that’s my shadow in my “weed bed”. I haven’t nurtured my garden or my muse for much too long. The why is a long story but the important part is it’s time to clean up and make space for my beautiful flowers. Have you hugged someone you love? Given yourself an atta girl? Nurtured your muse? Give somebody a hug, pat yourself on the back and give your muse an extra drink of water and watch and see how beautifully you are rewarded.
