There’s an old saying that goes, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” ⁠

So with the seeds that you have in your hands, plant your intentions.⁠

Be careful of getting lost in the past thinking about all of the things that could have been. It’s an endless abyss that’s incredibly hard to disconnect from. Very quickly those stories can turn dark on you if you’re not mindful.⁠

Be careful of getting stuck in the future. You can get equally as lost in the land of possibility as in the memories from the past. It’s okay to imagine where you want to go and dream about who you want to be. But you must always come back.⁠

Come back to being right…here. ⁠

Think about what you want to create in the moments in front of you. Because truly, those are the only ones you have. ⁠

They are the stepping stones to the future. ⁠
They are the seeds that mend the past.⁠

You’ve heard it over and over again – be in the now. Reel your mind back in. Take a deep breath. Trace it moving through you. Breathe again and again. ⁠

You are here.
