Thriving Mindset: Part 2

When I dropped into your inbox last week, the thriving mindset was the topic of choice…thriving houseplants to be exact. 

The message stuck with me and the Universe winked at me when I picked up a bracelet of Paul’s he’s had for years that I never knew said “Thrive” on the inside of it. 

You might remember that I planted an herb garden this spring. I was scared to death that I’d kill everything I planted but away I went!

The packages had different germination times but they should sprout in about two weeks. The first week went by with nothing from my new babies.

Then the second week hit and what do you know?! My thyme had sprouted! And not a little but a LOT. There were all of these tiny beautiful little baby sprouts and I was elated!

As I waited (not so) patiently for the other plants to sprout, a part of me wanted to worry about them. But with my thriving mindset, I knew that I had to focus on the greenery coming from the thyme pot. 

Then BAM, tiny sprouts from all of my other babies. It had worked! I was officially an herb gardener.

But then, the thyme started to wither and not look so hot. I remember remarking to Paul how I had spent so much of my time as an herb gardener focusing on the thyme…so silly 🙃 

I decided that because I am ready to stick with this new version of me, who focuses on what’s thriving, it’s time for me to accept that the thyme wasn’t cutting it. And I had to let it go. 

It may sound like such a simple thing, but in my heart, I know it was a giant step forward. 

As we open up to new ways of thinking and being, we have to let go of the old ones. I’ve realized that letting go doesn’t always have to be hard and scary, it can be done with gratitude and empathy.

And as I said goodbye to the thyme, I thanked it for giving me confidence as an herb gardener and showing me the beauty in growing.

I hope this post finds you thriving. And that if you are ready to find new ways to thrive, you’ll reach out to me. I’m always here for you.
