I was reminded recently of a quote that really struck home with me. I have been lacking courage and confidence. I have been thinking the things around me are too big to tackle. Or as my Dad put it, I have been worrying that my bag was too heavy to carry.
I need to shake all of that out my head and focus on the things I can effect (or is it affect?). Living in the now -- not dwelling on the past -- will lead to a more happy me.
"You must do the thing you think you cannot do" by Eleanor Roosevelt.
Speaking of the now. My seedlings are sprouting and growing bigger every day!
These are baby lettuce's getting taller/
In this shot, you can see how they are leaning toward the sunlight. Smarty little plants, aren't they? I try and remember to turn them every few days. It's fun to watch them dance side to side as they stretch forward.
Good example to be followed here. No matter what in life turns you this way or that ... if we just keep reaching stubbornly for the sunlight -- life will rock!
I really needed this pep talk! What do you do when things feel tough, unmanagable, and/or overwhelming?
