I do allow for weeds to exist in my life…but I have to watch! They can easily choke out the flowers! I think of “weeds” as all the little things we do in life that aren’t crucial to the stuff we want to see GROW.  My family, art & friends are all flowers I want to see flourish…so anything that I want and need to do to encourage that flourishing is the bedrock of the garden of life.  But there’s so much else that gets crammed in there, in between all the flowers, that seems to take over!

What’s that thing called, a “weed eater”?  That’s what I need.  I don’t want to get rid of them all, just enough of them so I can breathe!
