I'm Head Gardener Here

I'm Head Gardener Here

June 5, 2017

It's springtime. At this time of year, I find myself dreaming about spending time in my garden, feeling the warm glow of the sun, and tending to new growth. A little fertilizer here, a tiny little prune there. I developed my love of gardening with my mother. It is where we spent time together bonding. Years later she is gone, but her love of gardening lives with me, bigger than ever. One gardening lesson I learned from my mom is that whether we have to or not, we all grow and evolve. We all need to be nurtured, loved, attended to, and supported and if we get these needs met, we flourish.

Focused Minds

Our brain is a remarkable organ! They are never idle. When presented with something interesting in our environment – like a sunset or fireworks during the fourth of July – our brain is at once engaged. But have you ever wondered what happens when we aren’t taking an interest in our external environment anymore, or when our minds aren’t focusing on anything? Well, it is in these circumstances, that we are more susceptible to anxiety, stress, depression, and negativity.

It might be somewhat disconcerting to admit that despite how capable and successful you have been up till the present moment, that you now find yourself embroiled in conflict. You are definitely not feeling corporate support. It's almost bizarre, but you feel their pressure, as if you have somehow slipped out of favor and are no longer seen as the high performer you've always been.

On occasion we are told something that we just don't want to hear - but it can be valuable. To hear feedback from a neutral party, that is consistent with the feedback that we've been hearing from those at home and at work, may be all we need to start believing in it's validity. We need to be able to take this in, so that we can change and grow.

We are continuously creating and emanating emotional energy. Our individual thoughts and behaviors influence the energy's emotional quality. The words, actions and quality of our relationships reflect the energy that we emanate and that others feel and respond to. So, what we allow to go on inside our heads plus our actions, basically, produces our words and determines the quality of our relationships, maybe even the quality of our lives.

Perfecting Your Process

When I was younger I spent time with friends in the evening and on weekends in a gym. We worked out hard with weights. I attempted to "beef up." I was rather skinny as a kid. It was a great past time as well as a social event. Eventually, I took up jogging and participating in 10K races in and around my home. During the warmer months, I went fishing and hiking with the guys on weekends, which eventually gave way to golf. From my teenage years, I had always practiced meditation on and off. Mostly off to be honest, but as I got older that too has become more important to me.

Recovery from physical injury is often more involved than just healing the physical. Physical injury can quite often be symbolized as a red flag that appears as suffering, but underneath, is opportunity. Opportunity to consider significant life changes is not an easy task, as it can be accompanied by permanent threat to pre-injury employment or employment dissatisfaction.

Leadership really does inspire us. Successful leaders infuse their interactions with us, with caring energy and knowledge that develops our own self-confidence, confidence that we can feel and use in our day to day lives. Learning how to lead well encompasses self-exploration, self-care, and ultimately, challenging ourselves to responsibly stretch our own current skills sets.

First things, first. Are you still feeling charged up and in the zone? Do you continue to feel fortunate to be with your spouse, children and associates? Why are you no longer a source of inspiration, direction, encouragement, and vision to others, and who do you now rely on to motivate you?
