Now the Flowers in Your Garden, They Don’t Smell So Sweet. Maybe You’ve Forgotten the Heaven Lying at Your Feet – The Eagles

Your current situation might not be the most pleasant.  Stressful feelings or anxious thoughts might be affecting the way you see the garden around you, but know that beauty is still there. 

The difficult times represent life’s true tests of mindful thinking. To have the wisdom in recognizing that to experience discomfort is to understand pleasure. To feel sadness is to have known joy. To notice the bad is to have been a witness to good – Life breathes in dualities.   

Take a moment today to step back from the situation around you.  Create a small barrier between you and your troubles, if only for a few moments. 

Can you notice and find the good still growing amidst the negative?  Can you cultivate a sense of peace or acceptance for the current circumstances that surround your life?

Know that life always keeps the soil around your feet fertile ground for gratitude.  So make the choice to notice those things already around you for which you can be thankful for. 

Plant seeds of gratitude, despite the weeds.

  2. So true. We get tested in difficult times. Like a gold is cleaned in acid.

  3. I love that phrase, “life breathes in dualities”!
    Learning to be fully present in everything is to truly be free!
