My Healing Container Garden

A gardener, I am not.  But, when I retired to Florida more than four years ago, I decided our lanai was too cold and sterile.  So to add life, I purchased a few plants to bring color and life into this space.

Since that time, the container garden has gotten bigger and bigger.  Daily, I retreat to My Healing Garden to meditate, pray, and be still.

During this final season life, I am going on a journey to define "ME." Opening up and going outside of my comfort zone to redefine ME.. Exploring and pursuing new interests that will lead to personal happiness, serenity, and tranquility. In undertaking this mission, overcoming the FEAR is my greatest challenge. Fear has played a large role in my life, but I overcame the FEAR of breast cancer, chronic pain associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Sleep Apnea. My new mantra: FEAR has two meanings: "(1) Forget Everything And Run, or (2) Face Everything and Rise. The Choice is Mine." Blogging here I come ready or not!!!

    1. Both my container garden and the refurbishing lawn furniture project took me out-of-my-comfort. They are only two,of the many of the other new things I have undertaken since retiring four years ago. I have chosen to live this season of life to its fullest. And, I am having a great time. Thank you for your comment.

      1. Social Security is a good thing. I continue working full time for several years after I received my Social Security. At that time, my plan was to continue working in our family-owned business until — forever. But a serious life-threatening illness in 2010, changed everything. Hubby and I decided there had to be more to life than work and the annual vacation get-away. We retired and relocated to Florida. Everyday, I express gratitude for making this decision. Now, able to focus on me and what brings happiness into my space for the first time. My healing garden is one of my happiness spaces.
