Your mind is like a garden. Your thoughts are like seeds. You can grow flowers or you can grow weeds.
Everybody knows and agrees with the importance of the healthy living, most of us know what to do and what not to do with our bodies. On the other hand, taking good care of your mind is not perceived as common sense like taking care of your body; even though it’s sometimes even more important. Psychological pain is often much harder on you than physical pain. At the very least, a poor mindset leads to being constantly trapped in negative emotions, making bad life decisions, self-sabotage, several severe diseases (mind has a great influence on the body), an unhappy life in general and many other negative behaviors and outcomes.
Scars on a body are well seen, but wounds of a heart and mind are sometimes permanently hidden.
Thus you must regularly take care of your mind. Even though nothing lasts forever, you can extend the longevity of things with positive actions, regular maintenance, and constant growth and improvement. Your body and mind are no exceptions to that. With regular maintenance, they both last longer and function better. That’s exactly what you want.
If you want to have a beautiful garden, you have to take care of it regularly; on a daily basis. And if you want to have a beautiful mind, you have to take care of it regularly; also on a daily basis.
Peace and Love, Jim
