Since the beginning of my journey...it's been a process of learning and unlearning.
I can't go into it all now.
But what I can tell you is this:
The moment that you say...out loud..what you most feared saying.
It loses its power.
Then you are able to be honest.
Investing in yourself isn't just about education, or eating well or exercise.
It's investing in relationships.
I never knew that before I got well.
I thought I had to do it all alone.
I heard a preacher say once, there is no fruit without relationship...
You can have a nice Apple tree, but until you get a companion tree...there is no fruit.
I did not know this when I began my blog.
But I was beginning relationships.
The relationships you allow will bear fruit.
Good fruit or bad fruit.
It depends on the relationship.
And sometimes you have to be willing to chop it all down and start again...
And sometimes you have to decide whether to rip it out be the roots..or leave it....and this time, grow something that isn't twisted and ugly, but carefully tended and cared for.
It's hard to say whether it was the Gardner, the tree, or the circumstances.
Or maybe all three.
The Gardner has changed.
As has the soil..
I guess we will see.
The fruit of this blog has been plentiful and beautiful.
I have another idea brewing..another tree.
It's a seed.
We will see.
I invested in myself today.
I told the truth.
And pre made my food for work.
Now to invest in my other relationships.
Have a wonderful day.
