The Garden of Good Being

Where does being good begin?

 

Thinking good thoughts is one way to grow in goodness. Some of these good thoughts we call positive affirmations. Positive affirmations are statements that affirm the good in ourselves and the good in our lives.

 

Imagine you are creating a garden.

 

Each seed you plant contains its destiny to take root, flower, and fruit in splendor. But none of this growth can happen if you don't regularly water the seeds. 

So it is with thoughts. 

 

To reach our highest potential of being potential we must develop the patience and care of happy gardeners.

 

The original Garden of Good Being is an 18" x 24" collage, the grass of which is hand-cut and carefully arranged blade by blade, (with great patience and care.) Happy smiles pop out like colorful flowers, beaming affirmations like rays of sunshine. 

Each time I pass this piece, it helps me remember to take care of my thoughts.
