If we want to be happy, we have to plant the seeds that cause our happiness to sprout, grow, thrive and multiply. 

At the root of happiness is a sense of owning the responsibility that we are the gardener who is making the right choices for our lives. This is coupled with maintaining the integrity to follow through with the necessary care for what we hope will blossom. 

If we want our relationships, work-lives, home situations and dreams to flourish, the most important ingredient is our daily attention to the task and care. The seeds have been planted. Now it is up to us to water daily. Remove the weeds that might prevent our growth. Nurture the soil with whatever ingredients might be missing. Like the children’s story, The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss, there will always be naysayers. There will be obstacles. There will be moments of doubt about the situation, from others and even ourselves. It is our faith in the natural order of life; our belief that we are meant to blossom exquisitely like the most beautiful flowers; that by doing all that upholds our principles — life unfolds. The likelihood of our happiness manifesting becomes a sense of majority over what becomes the minority of natural disappointments — like those little bugs that nibble and try to sustain themselves via our efforts, are always there — but we can curtail their damage via our new perspectives, and thrive like priceless older vines.

Keep planting seeds of hope. Nourish those dreams with daily actions and care. Believe that each day our efforts are being rewarded. They are. Take the time to notice your growth. Like every other natural force…with the right ingredients, wonderful things happen… sometimes slowly, but surely.
