I got a little frustrated. Summer’s almost over and I haven’t finished nearly as much as I wanted to. Me and Jesus had a talk.
His message was simple; enjoy the transformation.
Hah. Now there’s an idea.
I walked out to the garden with new eyes. Yep, that projects not finished, but look at those flowers I transplanted a couple of months ago. They’re doing so well. And what about that bush? It’s growing like crazy.
The perspective changed my whole experience. Instead of seeing what wasn’t done, I was enjoying what was.
That led me to look at other areas of my life; work, relationships, my home, everything, really. I spent some time just celebrating the good stuff. What fun.
It’s not that there isn’t more I want. There always is, of course. More I want for myself and for the people I love. But if I only look at what I don’t have, then how can I enjoy what’s here and now?
My garden reminded me of this simple lesson. Perhaps it’ll remind you, too.
Take a look around. What do you see? What can you celebrate? And when you do, how does that feel?
It’s nice, isn’t it?
