\with LOVE :
1: WEED - PRIDE, EGO, INSECURITIES, PERFECTIONISM, UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS,
THERE’s NO COMPARISON in the garden. The Song Pick Flowers Not Fights is about not picking figurative fights with others and ourselves. That negativity is poison. So WEED ALL THAT!!!
2: TILL - Organize your time, set up your groundwork - when and where will you be working. Stop wasting time, USE Tools at the appropriate times and then enjoy them.
Unfollow and follow Examples. on social media, read and listen to inspiring work.
Carve out the time...One week/weekend a month...
TOOLS: Resources, Friends, Family, it takes a village, it takes all kinds of “gardeners”
3: SEE(d)s - What do you SEE for yourself. What is it that you are working for. WHY?
The stories we are telling ourselves, will determine our growth. Our personal narratives are our greatest motivators...
Visualize that garden, and the energy and love for your vision, but also ground yourself in the NOW, the blessing of the seed. The work. There is still much to enjoy in the process. Whether it is writing, painting, photography, culinary, make-up, theater, any creative work, which is every work…. remind yourself that you love it, even if it doesn’t grow quickly. Be Grateful. In life and in Motherhood especially, we don’t realize how our little everyday actions and efforts are nurturing life. BE PATIENT, with yourself.
4: GROW at home> GROW in the Wild<GROW TOGETHER
My #1 ultimate Vision and goal for my life, is to raise a happy family. That’s it. I love my husband and want him to be fruitful in his pursuits, and he wants that for me, and we want it ALL for our children too...is that too . . much to ask for. . . all the dreams for all the humans... My #2 Goal is to continue to write, and share music my entire life...I know its a windy, twisty, turny process, but ultimately we can get there if we don’t compare ourselves to others, stick to our groundwork, have patience, and validate our needs and wants as worthy. I know what I need to be a happy human, I need to sing, I need to make up stories, and melodies and share them with my friends... There is so much good that will bloom and grow if we give ourselves permission to be ourselves. We need Sunlight, Earth, Water and Time to grow. It takes all kinds of elements as nourishment. So make time for yourself, Even just an hour a day, a few hours a week. To create something out of nothing, connect with yourself. and Together as a family. A sketch, a poem, and song, a story. Creative moments will feed your soul and the lives of your little ones.
And Create alone.
Let your Children See you taking time away from them, to feed your own soul in the wild. Stretch, Bloom, Grow. Stand in the warmth of the sun and know it was created for you.
I want to stand there.
I want my children to stand there.
We can not give them happiness,
They must grow it for themselves.
