Gardening is therapeutic.

I look forward to my gardening day each week. It brings me such relaxation to spend time with nature. It heals emotionally and physically.

My favorite gardening activity is uprooting weeds. This activity reminds me of the importance of cleaning out the unhealthy clutter. I see how much my plants thrive when I remove the threats around them. It inspires me to do the same in my life.

Pruning my roses allows me to show care to another living thing. I get a true sense of pride when I see my flowers blooming and growing.

Seeing them cared for in their natural habitat teaches me the value of offering love. People and plants are alike in their gratitude to care and attention. I use the example of caring for my flowers to guide my relationships with my loved ones.

When I garden, I get a chance to see the beauty of nature unfold. It is so inspiring to see things blossoming even in unfavorable conditions.

I am reminded to persevere and let my good colors show. I owe it to myself to put my best foot forward. When I commit to this, I gain self-confidence. It is reassuring to see the response from others when I choose to shine bright.

Taking care of the plants each evening gives me a chance to meditate on the day behind me.

I use the opportunity before sunset to celebrate the day’s highlights and work on a plan for renewal for tomorrow.

Today, the beauty and wisdom of nature are influential in my life. I welcome each chance to spend time in my garden because it is an enriching experience.
