Thinning Out Carrot Beds
Thinning out carrot beds is similar to what I need to do in my own life. In order to be the best version of me, in order to support my own growth and success, I need to get rid of everything/everyone who isn't helping. I’m wondering if you have some thinning out to do, too.
Some things SLOW me down. I find when I am over tired I drink way too much coffee and I tend to crave sweets. Since I am tired I give in to those cravings too often. It’s not the cravings I have to address as much as the sleep. So I might need to get rid of what is keeping me up late (a favorite TV show, a movie started way too late to fully enjoy, or maybe that coffee needs to stop at a certain point in the day so it doesn’t keep me up). Do you do something that can slow you down?
Energy Zappers steal my strength. There are a few people in my life who always seem to be down. Just listening to their conversations leaves me tired. I work hard to leave them in a better state mentally than when I first started chatting with them. BUT I am drained, not from expelling physical energy, but these people have left me drained emotionally. Naysayers also bring me down. Those that seem to see the half glass empty in my life and want me to fix it. As much as I try to keep an open mind to their thoughts, it tires me out to know others see such a gap in the goodness of what I am doing/trying to do. Do you also have those in your life who unknowingly take some of the positive energy you need to be successful and flourish?
As I’m gardening it's hard to cut out so many little carrot or bean plants. It’s my least favorite part of gardening, because I always feel bad that I didn't let them grow up. I know in the long run, those that are left will grow up bigger, better, and tastier than if I'd left all of them bunched together. While you might not enjoy it, think about who/what needs to be thinned from your own life in order to be the strongest, healthiest, best version of you. And yank them out without mercy. 🙂
To your best health,
