I planted the seeds of self doubt
And soon my garden was overgrown and untamable.
So I dug it up and tilled the earth
And planted new seeds of acceptance.
The flowers bloomed in colourful rows
And I watered them daily with love.
When the world feels really heavy,
Put it down.
Look at the sky.
Feel the breeze.
Smell the flowers.
Just put down the weight of the world
And let your worries float away like clouds.
I turn my face towards the sun
and close my eyes in reverie.
The warmth wraps around my shoulders
as a mother tenderly swaddling her newborn babe.
A chorus of birds joins together in song.
From somewhere in the distance,
the scent of honeysuckle floats towards me on a breeze.
I inhale deeply.
A moment’s pause
