The Garden of Your Life

Dreams, like plants, need space to grow.

I have a plant that has followed me from home to home over the last twenty years. At one point, it died down to one leaf and instead of letting it go, I loved it back to life.

I began to notice that the growth and health of my plant varied based upon the size of its container and how high it was placed. When people see it, they jokingly refer to it as the plant from the movie and musical, Little Shop of Horrors, because it’s so massive in size. When I lived in a loft with really high ceilings, it stretched and grew to a length that I never thought would be possible. This has many literal and figurative parallels to life.

Our dreams, like plants, need space and height to grow.

Think of yourself or your dream as the plant. What is your container or environment like, and how is it hindering or contributing to your growth?

Now think of the people you associate with and the goals that you set for yourself. Are they at a level that allows and encourages you to stretch, or are they keeping you stunted and stifled?

This week I challenge you to tend to the garden that is your life. How can you adjust your environment to give yourself and your dreams the space and height they need to grow?
