If Each of Your Thoughts is a Seed…What Does Your Garden Look Like?
“In a garden, if you only weed, you’ll be exhausted and lose hope. If you plant enough flowers, eventually there will be less room for all the weeds and you will find your joy.”
To be fully well, you must learn to cultivate joy and peace in each breath. Even though you may be grieving and feel pain, you have to learn to cultivate joy and peace at the same time. It’s like a garden: You have to take care of the weeds, but you also have to plant flowers.
