Check on your garden daily. Check everyday to see if there are any weeds or bramble creeping in in the form of fear or doubt and be sure to pull them out right away. My last word of advice is how to water your garden. If love is the sunshine your garden needs to thrive, then gratitude is the water.
When you live, breathe and eat gratitude, your paradise will thrive. I mean that literally. Right now, take a breath and say thank you. When you eat, say thank you. Think of all of the people who were required to get that food to you. Send them all a thank you in your mind. Farmers, grocers, delivery drivers, cooks, waiters, wherever you are, whatever your eating, just say thanks.
When you are at the grocery, smile your thanks at the people helping you. When you are watching game of thrones, thank the actors, directors, the author thank the cable company thank anyone you can think of.
If you spend you days thinking of reasons that you feel blessed, then you won't have time to feed the bad thoughts. Thank the sun for shining, or the clouds for bringing rain. Thank the people at apple for your phone or computer or thank android for offering apple competition.
Be kind, slow down, breathe deeply and look around.
Be kind, slow down, breathe deeply and look around. Are you late for work, but an old lady needs help crossing the street? Stop and help her with a smile, you both will leave happier for it. Is your grocery clerk overwhelmed with a huge line? Help her out and bag your own groceries with a smile, maybe someone called in sick and they are understaffed. Are you too good to touch your own food now? Is it better to stand there and watch impatiently, complaining in your mind? No of course not! She will thank you and you can thank her right back. See gratitude multiply and be proud to be a part of the solution as opposed to part of the problem.
If everyone helped one another, there would be a heck of a lot less to complain about, and guess what? We would all be surrounded by a bit more paradise. So in creating a paradise within yourself , suddenly you would be helping to create a paradise for everyone else as well.
I'm hoping to contribute to paradise by sharing my beliefs with you. Sure I'm sometimes afraid and want to take it all back, but then I would have to go to sleep each night knowing I didn't even try.
Abandon fear, find love. Let's do it together and grow our community stronger.
Thank you for your time, thank you for giving me a chance, I really appreciate it.
Have a lovely weekend I hope you decide to come back and explore with me.
