I am so happy to be following one of my longest-held goals, growing a garden.
It is peace-giving to move in the direction of your heart.
I am trying out ideas I have read about and finding out what works.
I am going about it in ways which make sense to me, one-step-at-a-time.
I am connecting threads which have been broken for most of my life.
Even though it is what I have dreamed of doing, it is terrifying to be making decisions toward what I choose.
Following the dictates of others was a required path.
Now it is no more.
So I am building up the practice to move in my new direction.
As I begin soil improvements and start growing a few plants, I feel the peace that I have always desired.
I am so glad to see new flowers blooming and tomatoes and squash beginning to produce.
It is the beginning of something I have always wanted and it is happening.
