I dig out the old weeds of contention. I eradicate the destructive bugs of war. I create a space of joy.
I love to get my hands down into Mother Earth and play in the dirt. I love the metaphor of gardening and use it practically every day. I physically grow flowers and vegetables as a living metaphor for my life.
I love to water my plants. I love to see them grow. I love to cultivate kindness toward my plants. I map that across to animals and people. I cultivate kindness wherever I go.
I carry a bountiful garden of goodness in my heart. I share the flowers of love with each person I meet. I choose to see the world as a garden of Eden.
I do my part to beautify this world. I grow flowers for bees and butterflies. I use herbs in my cooking. I take the time to feed my family love-filled foods.
I do my part to bring a bouquet of kindness to my workplace. I beautify my desk with plants and flowers to remind me of the metaphor of kindness. I use aromatherapy to bring an atmosphere of peace to my world.
I perform random acts of kindness around the office. I bring people presents for no reason. I love seeing people’s faces light up when they receive an unexpected gift of kindness.
Today, I realize that the more bouquets of kindness I give away, the more my heart’s garden blooms.
- Who in my life could use a bouquet of kindness?
- How can I show more kindness to myself?
- Where in my world could I cultivate a peace garden?
