"A garden requires patient labor and attention.
Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions
or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because
someone expended effort on them." --Liberty Hyde Bailey
I adore the quote above. It ties in nicely with something I say often: "As in nature; so, too, is it in life."
Dedicate loving, mindful effort on yourself. When I refer to "effort," I'm not necessarily saying scads of time or money need to be expended, either. Affirm as you dress in the morning, walk to your afternoon meeting--rather than driving, write a few lines in your journal as you relax in the evening... Like a thriving garden, you, also, will begin to experience abundant growth.
May your Friday be wonderful! Joy and peace, T.
