My garden has yet again inspired me 🙂
I had a day yesterday which was really ‘Blah’. You know those days where you just feel crappy and not all that motivated to do anything.. even the things you usually love doing! You feel tired, frustrated, angry at yourself for not getting on with things, afraid that you’ve lost your passion and it’s never coming back.. (haha.. That last bit.. We’re tricked every single time!).
Anyway, it was one of those days.
I asked myself, “What is something small I can do, ANYTHING that is in favour of what is truly important to me?” I immediately thought of planting some more seedlings. I had everything I needed to do it, and even some little seedling trays just waiting for me.. The heavy slump started to kick in.. “But what’s the point? It’s going to be AGES before they’re big enough to put into the garden, and even then, it’ll still be a couple of months before we get to enjoy the harvest!” (Like two months is such a long time to wait! I’ve been waiting 20 years or more for other stuff to harvest ! haha)..
I thought about it for a second. How silly it sounded. And how rude to those little seedlings! I thought of our veggie patch.. every single one of those plants started from a little seed. Imagine if I’d decided it wasn’t worth it a couple months ago.. There wouldn’t be any plants now. There’s so many things in life it can relate to too.. Imagine if I’d decided I was too ‘old’ to start playing the guitar two and a half years ago, I wouldn’t be releasing my first official single right now. (That’s kind of a scary thought! I’m glad I did it!)
So you know what I did, I planted those little seedlings and I felt so happy. It took me about 10 minutes, yet what I receive in return will be an ongoing harvest of vegetables that I love! Such a small investment for such a large return. Even the tiniest steps we take matter, but what matters, is that we do them 🙂
The other cool thing that happened after that? My ‘slump’ started to lift. I naturally found myself engaging in the things I normally love doing again 🙂 x
