Today, I was back at the farm, weeding and harvesting. You can learn valuable life lessons while taking care of the land. One of them is adaptability. The first day on the farm this is what my sneakers looked like.
The clay-like red soils of this area of Oahu really stick your footwear. So I decided to try something different today and wore plastic bags over my flip-flops. I actually got this idea from seeing teenage boys wearing plastic bags over their expensive Jordans when it rained. And it seemed to have worked pretty well. Next time, I will wear two bags over my feet.
Another lesson is in weeding out that which no longer serves us and is blocking us from reaching our highest good. This includes habits, relationships, work environments, and most especially, negative thought patterns. Today and Monday, I spent a lot of time weeding out nutgrass. I also spent time weeding out negative thought patterns and replacing them with positive affirmations.
Let’s tend to our precious garden of life with loving care friends. Happy Thursday!
