There’s a Chinese proverb that says:
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago.
The second best time is now.
I often beat myself up for things I meant to do, want to do, forgot to do, etc., and I’m usually right: It would have been easier if I had done something differently in the past. But the fact is, I can’t change what happened then, but I can change what happens now.
Now I can plant seeds – whether they’re the seeds of work I want to see done in the future, seeds of fun, love and laughter with my daughters, seeds of health and wellness and all the other things I want to be cultivating in my life. I can plant those seeds every day.
This week I’m already feeling the change of season from my Florida “winter” to Spring. It’s the end of the month. The beginning of the season of lent. It’s a time of new beginning. A perfect time to put some water on the seeds of the things you want for your life.
Happy Monday and have a great week!
