Weeds or Sunflowers


Weeds or sunflowers. You decide what you water.

We don’t fertilise and encourage the weeds in our real gardens, so why do we do that in our minds garden?

Why do we allow the weeds to smother the sunflowers, block out all the sun and overtake everything?

Technically it may feel easier to give in to the crappy thoughts, the self loathing, the woe is me mentality. But it is actually very very hard keeping up those shitty things.

Today, pull one weed out. By telling yourself something you like about yourself. Then let the droopy sunflower perk up by allowing the sun to hit it, as you challenge those murky thoughts.

Allow the water to bathe the sunflower in gratitude. Gratitude for anything you can think of, even if it is getting out of bed, or surviving the day.

There’s plenty to love, appreciate and be grateful for, if only we choose to see that, rather than our faults, our crappy minutes in the day, or circumstances.

If you were able to put yourself in those circumstances, the guess what???!!

You can get yourself out of them too. Funny how that works. So today choose to harbour the sunflowers and slowly filter out the weeds.

It doesn’t matter how long it takes. Just that you start.

“I choose to nourish only the positives in my minds garden, allowing the sun and water to nourish the love, the beauty and the gratitude every day”

Till next time… keep walking your spiritual path xx
