rebuild

Time and time again, I find myself thanking the universe for putting gardening in my path. I’ve been investing so much time in both the outdoor and indoor garden and honestly, I feel like I’m getting back so much instead.

The peace, calm and guidance on life are what lingers in the quiet moments of progress. Just a few months ago, the marigolds weren’t even a seedlings yet, and now, they are blooming in the warm sun every single day. The soil underneath used to be dry, cold and malnourished. Now, it’s alive.

Gardening has helped me rebuild my perspectives. The practice of caring taught me to accept and embrace the imperfections and the unpredictable. Taught me that there are always lots to learn despite knowing so much. And that’s where the rebuilding can come from—the knowledge, the practice and the progress.
