Bare with me this morning
as I get a little deep with you.
The other day I was working in my garden.
Usually, I am the deadheading queen- instant gratification.
But this summer, I didn't get around to it much.
Hence, pretty flowers surrounded by spent blooms.
From afar, you don't really notice the shriveled petals.
But when you take a closer look, it's not very pretty.
I also noticed that my neglected plants were a lot wimpier- their stems are puny- not as strong.
This is when I started thinking of my own life.
What do I have in my life, that is robbing nourishment?
What can be "deadheaded" so I can be stronger, happier, and "prettier".
A few things jumped out at me right off the bat-
things that rob valuable time- TV, Facebook, blog-hopping, . . .
Then I started thinking of past goof ups that have been forgiven,
yet I hang on to them for some odd reason-
and they rob my joy.
Then I started thinking of "things" outside the home
that take time away from my family.
Yep, there are a few things I can "deadhead"
so that I can be stronger and full of joy.
Anything you should be "deadheading"?
Alright, enough deep thoughts for today.
Hope you have a beeeeeeeautiful day!
