Surprising things can happen to anyone who, when a disagreeable or discouraged thought comes into his mind, just has the sense to remember in time to push it out by putting in an agreeable determinedly courageous one. Two things cannot be in one place. Where you tend a rose, my lad, a thistle cannot grow.
~ Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
Ever notice, two different people walking through very similar if not the exact same scenario will view this situation completely and utterly different - due to their perspective.
I like how the author this of book, Nourished, writes...
The blessing of a well-stored mind is that regular soul nourishment can give you wisdom and strength to hold you through difficult times. When you savor your blessings and give thanks for them during happier, easier times, you've created a mental garden of gratitude and good memories that may hold you steady during times of drought, when it can be hard to think at all.
Gratitude grows our garden-hearts and garden-minds and fills them with good things.
What is our perspective? How does our garden grow?
Something to think about as we're about to enter a new season of our lives!
Thank you for reading here, today!
