Weeds in my Life Garden
I’m recycling today. It’s good for the environment (right?) I’ve had a nasty headache for the last 36 hours, no break (except for sleep). It SUCKS! I’m feeling like a zombie. I’m grumpy, sleepy and dopey all rolled into one 5 foot tall dwarf (which is tall for a dwarf and short-ish for a full-grown woman). It’s migraine or sinus related I think. I’m feeling pretty crappy.
When I get a headache like this, it has an affect on my sense of smell. It’s similar to how my sense of smell was altered when I was pregnant. Things smell bad (spoiled) even when they are not. My husband can attest to the fact that I threw away 3 or 4 perfectly good pot-roasts while I was pregnant because they “smelled bad” to my pregnancy altered nose.
So without further ado…..This is another transferred post, from my old blog – to my new blog. Interweb recycling. It’s all the rage. I hope you enjoy it.
This morning I was in my front yard getting my paper and I noticed my flower beds. Oh the horror! I’ve got quite a lot of weeds in my garden. It’s really sad, the weeds choke the flowers, crowd the bushes and populate like bunnies. I’ve got some good
reasons ehh… excuses for the weed population in my garden. Sick child, busy life, bone spur in my left knee, it’s hot, I’m tired, I’ve got a headache…blah blah blah. I’m tolerant of the garden weeds for now, because I’m not feeling like fixing the issue at the moment.
The weeds got me thinking though………………………………
How many weeds do I have in my life?
It’s a tricky question to answer. Honest answer?
I’m not really sure. Some life weeds are easy to spot. They are ugly and very “weed like”. Others are deceptively pretty, flower like, fun. It’s easy to miss the pretty weeds, because they fool you. I think they are the more dangerous weeds. We become use to them. We overlook them. They do not set off the alarms that the “ugly weeds” do.
Life is about balance, the weeds throw things off kilter. They muddy your life and cause chaos.
I’m putting my weeds on notice, getting my gloves and spade….it’s time to fix my life garden.
