The Upward Spiral

I’ve been working in our yard a lot this past week. The inside of our house is completely gutted down to the wall studs. So with a good book on tape (The Tattooist of Auschwitz) I’ve been in the yard. We bought our house when everything was under snow and now I am beginning to see what life exists under ground as it starts its upward spiral to the sun.

These plants are moving from a lower level to a higher level. They are fighting the force that says you can’t do this. Its a real battle but they know they have the capacity to rise and so they follow their inner guide that says grow. Renewal is always the principle that comes with spring- this upward spiral of growth and change. I personally believe we all have this little inner voice of conscience that is always trying to positively influence us. It is an impossibly clear voice that when we hear it we know exactly what it is. The problem is is it’s also a delicate voice and easily stifled.

This voice is always trying to help us grow. Always. The more we listen to it the more we sprout self love, self trust, and self confidence.

It’s planting season all around. Plant something good. Because we reap what we sow. Which means we bring into our lives whatever we focus on growing. I often think of this little french tea towel I have that says cultivons le bonheur which roughly translated means growing happiness.

Grow your happiness.

    Funny so true. My gardens have become “tired” in appearance. All winter I felt frustrated and tired. Spring, time to renew and refresh!

    Here winter is coming and that’s exactly what I was busy doing , getting the kids new clothes for the season as they do just that: grow like weeds, or flowers 😉
