What is the soil of your mind growing?
I was working out in the yard around our home, digging in the dirt; getting some things ready for spring planting and digging up some plants I didn’t want growing, like poison ivy. It was growing beside a maple tree that I really like.
So I stood there, thinking about the fact that poison ivy and a maple tree grow in the same soil. I guess that’s because the soil really doesn’t care what’s planted in it—a maple tree or poison ivy. The soil nourishes and grows whatever it receives.
You know, your mind is like that, too. You can choose to plant poison ivy—negative thoughts like worry and frustration. Or, you can choose to plant maple trees—positive thoughts like wonder and fascination. Your mind nourishes and grows whatever it receives.
I dug up the poison ivy, clearing the way for the maple tree to receive more nourishment. Uproot the negative thoughts from your mind today, and clear the way for the positive to receive more nourishment as you Listen to Life and Live Positive.
