The idea of “planting seeds” is an excellent analogy for focusing on the positives in your life and establishing the practice of daily positive affirmations…
Planting a whole garden can seem daunting and full of anxiety in itself, but all you have to do is start by planting one seed. And keep adding another one here and there. Take care of those seeds, and before you know it, a green little shoot will appear and continue to grow and flourish.
Or, in real life, your business will become successful or you will start seeing improvements in your relationship for example. Nothing is more exciting than seeing your seed turn into something that blooms.
If you are new to planting seeds in your own life, here are a few tips:
1. Seeds take time to grow…
A whole garden isn’t created over night, and neither is a dream life. Affirmations need to be nurtured and watered regularly. By focusing on the positives, and seeing the little shoots that start to peek out from the earth in the form of something new, we can start to see the progress we are making in our journey to start living the life we’ve always wanted.
2. Seeds must change to grow…
A seed can’t stay a seed forever. When cared for with nourishing soil, rays of sunlight, and water, they change shape and start to become whatever it is they were meant to be.
To really experience positive change, you too, must let go of your past and embrace the transformation that’s about to take place. Have confidence knowing you will take on a better form, even if it takes time.
3. When a seed flowers, everyone recognizes its’ beauty…
After a seed undergoes a transformation and takes on a new form, everyone appreciates it for whatever it has to offer, whether it’s a beaming sunflower or a crisp carrot.
Each seed has something new, something more to contribute. And how did it get to this point? With time and a transformative change.
Go out there and start planting seeds in your life, no matter how hard or pointless it may seem right now.
With a little time, patience and hard work, what now seems like an empty garden patch will be filled with beauty and growth.
Just like a beautiful flower attracts butterflies, your life will be a magnet to the right kind of people that will truly make it one worth living.
