Life is like a garden, I contemplated to myself as I weeded and planted my garden this past weekend. I love to garden. Gardening helps me get centered and calm. It allows me to connect to my inner-self and just enjoy the moment of digging in the dirt and seeing the efforts of my labor grow into something beautiful. Before the garden flourishes, it is necessary to spend time weeding, replenishing the dirt and mindfully placing the plants in places they will naturally flourish.
