Is it enjoyable?

gardeningmanSo it’s that time of year when there’s plenty to do in the garden, pruning, weeding, deadheading, harvesting, watering….etc! As someone who used to garden for a living, I know how easy it can be to get carried away….”I’ll just finish cutting that hedge/ digging that plot, mowing the lawn..!” There’s always something! And it’s not just gardening that we sacrifice pleasure for our to-do lists!

This week a number of my class members were suffering aches and pains from over doing it and it reminded me of what I learned,the hard way (herniated disc) about gardening , and life in general which is:

1. It should be enjoyable, if it’s not something needs to change!

2. Listen to your body before it has to SHOUT to be heard!

3. When something feels like a struggle, ponder the question “why am I doing it?” “Is it worth it?” “What are my other options”?

Have a great weekend folks and take time to smell the roses.
