Life Is Like a Garden

Life is like a garden, you reap what you sow. Better to plant kindness, joy and laughter that will bloom and shine in your personal garden than to plant weeds of anger, abuse and vulgarity. Both grow, but one can take the joy out of everything around you and choke all your flowers to death.

Whatever thoughts you plant in your mind will percolate and grow into action, words and behaviours. Good and positive thoughts bloom and spread joy and kindness around you. Likewise negative and violent thoughts can also manifest but they bring only pain and darkness. It is a wise person who knows how to weed their thoughts so only positivity and goodness blooms.

We choose our friends much in the same way we plant flowers. We want people who love and support us. Friends who will cheer us on and lift us up but also tell us when we are straying. If we lead a life of negativity and violence that is the type of friends we attract as like attracts like. When chosen wisely, every friend is unique and special, each in their own way, each bringing something beautiful to your garden.

Much like a garden we need to prune out the bad stuff so the good stuff can blossom and grow. We each bring our own colour to the garden of the world as well; a different variety that when blended makes a colourful, beautiful bouquet.

Plant carefully, mind what and where you sow, because life is very much like a garden.

One thought on “Life Is Like a Garden

  1. Really good analogy – Life is like a garden. Well tended and good will come through. Edgar Cayce, believe, wrote that after 1944, we live to pay back our bad behaviour before we part with this world. Sinatra’s song words regrets,”there are a few,” is an understatement when we view our lives, surely with regard, to what we once said to people or how we treated them. Youth, frequently has ignorance met with arrogance, when a review is made of individual life passage. Relationships which failed through our own failings, as much as the other, but not recognized at the time. Timely reminder to be kindly and understanding toward others, on life’s journey.
