Your Mind is a Garden… Your thoughts are the seeds…

Your mind is a garden.  Your thoughts are the seeds. You can grow flowers or you can grow weeds.  PLUCK those weeds darn it! A good mantra to start your Monday. 

I worked my tail off on the garden over the weekend, working to make it feel like an actual little oasis.  

A few tips if you’re new at this whole gardening thing: 

  1. Weed after a rain, or after you water… it’s easier when the ground isn’t dry
  2. If you’re just starting out. Start small. 
  3. Start with easy things like tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, pumpkins, squash, zucchini, and some herbs. 
  4. Buy plants that are started, not seeds… especially for tomatoes and herbs.

But when it comes to having a positive attitude and plucking those “mind weeds” I have another list of tips:

  1. Listen to uplifting music
  2. Write down 3 things you’re grateful for every morning
  3. Stretch/move your body
  4. Read a book
  5. Chat with a friend.  My favorite is Marco Polo. 

I hope you all have a great week and can keep your mind and your garden weed free!  

Oh, and for all of you asking about these overalls from yesterday’s stories, they’re from Liberty Overalls.  I love that they’re lightweight for summer, but I can layer them with leggings in the winter.  I also love the zippered pocket for keeping my phone safe while I’m doing projects!
