When you see a plant/tree shedding its leaves in autumn, you can’t help but wonder why didn’t I do this? Why did I not let go of the things that are old, dry and no more of any use? We clutter ourselves with so many material and emotional baggage. We need to let go. We need to understand that after every autumn comes a spring! Every single time we let go of things that are no longer needed, we make room for new and beautiful ones to come into our life. Applies to single facet of our life!
Minimalism is defined in many ways by many people. All I want to say here is let go off the useless stuff. I have been trying to get rid off the stuff I no longer need and with every single thing I pick up, I realize I have attached so many emotions to it. All I wonder is why? Do you as well?
Social/Environmental Cause is a big term. Often associated with a false pride of us doing something for environment/others/society. I don’t think it really works that way. In the beginning, even I believed that I am doing something which is good for the planet. Bringing a change to the world or making the planet a greener place, are good things to talk about. But let’s be frank here. If you’re planning to start gardening, do it for yourself. Do it because it is one of the best things to be done!
Earth provides us with everything we need. Right from our food to our shelter, everything. So the next time you plant a tree, don’t say ‘for a better Earth’, say ‘for a better me’. Let your acts be that of a gratitude. If there is anything that you can change for better, it’s yourself. Earth can take care of herself.
Happy Gardening 🙂
