More and more of my garden is weeded each time I look

Any time spent growing spiritually is sacred. 

Any day we expand our emotional range is a victory. 

Any bout of healing leads us closer to the life we really want.

Anything that helps us get to know ourselves better is never a waste of time. 

We always come out stronger on the other side. 

Hancock, the great innovator of modern jazz, recently wrote an open letter to the next generation of artists. His spoke about this very issue:

Every relationship, obstacle and interaction is a rehearsal for the next adventure in life. Everything is connected. Everything builds. Nothing is wasted. This type of thinking requires courage. You must never lose your sense of exhilaration and reverence for this wonderful world around you. 

And so, it all depends on whether or not we are willing to open our eyes, take a look and assume the responsibility. 

Here’s a helpful question that can reframe any experience into an awareness plan for never wasting anything:

How am I learning enough through this experience to consider it part of my education? 

With that kind of intention, everything is grist for the mill. 

More and more of our garden is weeded each time we look. 


Do you have an unremitting willingness to shoulder whatever responsibility growth entails?* * * *
