Planting my own Metaphor

Nature as a mirror can help bring insights into your daily life.  When I made the transition to move to Bellingham I planted sage seeds gifted to me by my adviser.  Their stage of sprouting made me smile as it mirrored my budding new life.  It is not lost on me now how the plant withers when it doesn’t get enough water and appears to come back to life when it gets what it needs.  I have learned to put a bulb in the soil to water it throughout the week.

Plant something.

If you have already planted your seeds for the season, how does that stage of development mirror your own?  For your mature plantings, notice how they respond when you care for them and when you don’t.  How does that mirror how you care for yourself?
