I was thinking this week about my plants in the garden and how some of them thrive in certain spaces and some of them don’t.
On the back of their seed packets are specific instructions for how deep the seeds should be planted, how far apart from each other, when they should be planted (soil temp), etc.
Are people really any different?
Do we each actually have a set of ideal planting and cultivating instructions that if we followed we would set ourselves up to thrive and be more resilient?
What would those be for you?
If you were to write a description of your planting instructions- what would those look like?
Here are some ideas:
There is so much diversity in plants and what they need.
AND so much diversity in what success looks like for each plant.
In a garden we take the time to learn and cultivate new awareness of what works and what doesn’t.
What if we approached our lives and our life’s work with the same curiosity, experimentation and acceptance?
