Tales of a Double Virgo
Fall Clean UP
tending to and cleaning gardens
tucking them for the winter.
let’s jump right IN to the deep thoughts from the garden
tho i write from a deeply personal perspective
i am fiercely private
<or have been>
i also tend to NOT look at the past much.
i rationalize it
by thinking i keep my eyes forward
because the past seems to house much pain
failure and other things i’d rather not RE-visit.
Hold The Phone!
i also created some pretty bad ass things.
why is it so easy to forget those?
why do i place such emphasis on the ickies
negative zero on the bliss?!
as i spread the dark delicious compost
around my plant friends
My Past is Fertilizing My Future.
all that shit is fertilizer.
i am ~literally~
using my discarded rotting scraps of past
to nourish this now
the version of now that exists in my future.
deep thoughts from the garden….
fall clean up
use the shit of your past
to fertilize your future.
sometimes we need weeded
we are not very different
from EVERYTHING AROUND US.
We get so comfy in our ways
allowing our roots
to firmly secure us
we uprooted that sameness
moved it all around.
like Mrs. Potato Head.
wear your lips on your forehead
your shoes where your ears go
walk on your hands.
what if you leaned IN
and chose the opposite of your ‘norm’?
to stay instead of run.
to smile instead of cry.
to hug instead of punch.
take a deep breath instead of holding it.
‘choose the opposite of your sameness’
that’s what the gardens told me.
‘use that shit to fertilize your future’
it’s rich in nutrients 😀
we can truly let go
and be grateful for what is.
be willing to choose something new
be open to change around your inner garden
allow yourself to be nourished by all that shit from your past.
