Studies show that being grounded in the outdoors significantly improves mood. Instead of sinking into depression and anxiety, sink your feet into the ground, then get your hands dirty and plant something that you can nurture into something beautiful!
We, as humans, have the incredible potential for creativity and transformation. And the potential begins with us. Fortunately, no one else can live our lives for us. No one else can speak our truth. No one else can offer our particular gift to the world.
So the questions we seek answers to – “Who am I? What am I called to?” No one else can answer but us.
And our answer is found in our lives – in the process of living, in the seeds we plant day by day with our thoughts, our words, and our actions. Do we purposely sow Truth, Beauty, Goodness? Do we actively seek authentic relationship with others? Do we increase our capacity to hold the fullness of life with the complex, nuanced, and often paradoxical emotions and situations … in order to transform each moment into something meaningful and real?
“Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.” John 12:24
Can we hold space for the painful process of growing out of the small grain that we understand ourselves to be in this moment, to offer the abundance of who we are meant to become over a lifetime?
As we step out into the world each day, we cultivate the garden of our lives. What do you nurture the soil with? How do you protect it from harm? How will you reap an abundant harvest?
Love’s Meeting “I came down to the nut garden to look at the fresh growth of the valley, to see if the vines were in bloom, if the pomegranates had blossomed. Before I knew it, my heart had made me the blessed one of my kinswomen.” Song of Songs 6:11-12
Let’s seek your Truth, support your Voice, and empower you into Courageous Action in this world, one small step at a time, over a lifetime.
