Emerging From Broken posted a quote on social media:
“When weeds come up in your garden, it does no good to say, ‘There are no weeds, there are no weeds, there are no weeds…’ It doesn’t help to pretend they’re not there. It doesn’t matter how much you focus on the beautiful plants that are growing. The weeds aren’t going to disappear until you get on your hands and knees and pull them out. – In your own life, you can’t just ‘focus on the positive, focus on the positive, focus on the positive’, and expect your problems to go away. If there are some weeds, you have to deal with them.” ~ Nick Ortner
Dandelions are weeds to some but herbs to others. However, I don’t want weeds like a sense of inadequacy, unworthiness, jealousy, impatience, arrogance, unkindness. Pretending they aren’t there won’t make them go away. Positive thinking won’t make them go away. I have to choose to uproot them and toss them on the rubbish heap where they belong.
