Treat Your Mind Like A Garden

Your mind is like a garden. Your thoughts are the seeds. You can grow flowers. Or you can grow weeds. It takes only a little imagination to realize that seeds are the thoughts, the flowers are positive words and actions and the weeds are negative words and actions.

Thoughts don’t just happen. They are the result of what you allow into your processor. Secondly even if you select the healthiest seeds possible, they need to be nourished regularly. And you have to keep the weeds out. This requires constant care.

A person’ s mind has some similarities with a garden. It can be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild. Whether cultivated or neglected, it will produce results. If no useful seeds are put into it, weeds will take it over. You have to put good seeds in, nourish them on a regular basis, and keep the weeds out.

We reap what we sow. Sow means plant or what you put in. Reap means harvest or what you get later. I do believe positive, uplifting, inspiring information every day has made me a better person. Not better than another person, just better than I was before.

Getting things off to a positive start sets the tone for any conversation. It all starts with changing our outlook, refocusing our attention. If we don’t see the good around us, it won’t be in our minds and it won’t be what we talk about. If we let our natural tendencies rule us we’ll be far more likely to talk about what’s wrong instead of what’s right. What comes out of our mouths is usually the result what got our attention and landed in our minds. 

Look for the good. When you find it, share it with someone.
