My husband has oodles of energy, he tends to get a lot done in the garden,
whilst I'm always lacking in energy and find myself feeling overwhelmed.
To be honest a handkerchief garden would suit me better, unlike the two acres we have!
So the bulk of gardening gets done by my love,
which is fine since he was the one who pushed to live here!
The only problem is he's a bit of a top surface gardener, a little hoeing
here, tweaking the edges there, all the while beneath the surface those invasive type plants are
sending their spider web roots ever outward and our garden is fast becoming a jungle!
Yesterday whilst my love was away for the weekend, I suddenly had an urge to garden,
an energy rush. I surprised and surpassed myself in his absence and without his well intentioned
"you'll never get those roots out of there" advice. ;~)
At the end of the day I went indoors feeling wonderful at my new-found strength and vigour,
I couldn't help but analyse ~
and the moral of the story is this ~
If you tell yourself something or someone else tells you often enough you will believe it!!
I told myself I had no energy ~ false
He told me I would not be able to get those roots out ~ false
Lesson learned ~
challenge those old stories,
write new lines for yourself,
send your love away for the weekend once in a while!
Will be back soon, soon I say :~)xxx
