My life as a garden

I have this image of my life as a garden that needs tending.

 Nurturing new activities that are vulnerable is like taking care of a new seedling.  Like learning how to love myself more.  Like learning to trust myself more.  How do I learn to trust myself more?  Well, I need to rely on my telling the truth of what I feel more often.  I need to trust that I will say yes when I want to say yes and say no when I want to say no.  Instead of people-pleasing or putting other people's needs and expectations above my own.  So truth leads to trust and in my experience, trust leads to a sense of safety and belonging.

Tending to my garden.
