“In the garden, patience isn’t just a virtue; it can pay off big time…If we can school ourselves to pause, relax and let things happen in their own time, we won’t just save money. We’ll get stronger, healthier plants and more enjoyment from our outdoor spaces.” -Beth Botts. Read full article at the ChicagoTribune.com.
Wow this saying really hit home today! I’ve been rushing, rushing, rushing – like many of us do. Marcella (my little Budha) had to stop me in my tracks the other day. She said, “Be patient with yourself.” It was a really important message for me. It’s easy for me to have a ton of patients with others. Yet, I forget to be patient with myself. I’m sure many of you do this as well. It seems these days we are all always rushing around, or want things to happen now. We must remember, just like having patience with our garden will give us stronger, healthier plants – having patients with ourselves will give us stronger, healthier us!
