Dear Self, Tend to your own yard.

I mean this both literally and figuratively. You have gone through most of your life needing, depending and relying on other people to do things for you that you are capable of doing yourself. Stop looking outside of yourself for someone else to fix things. Your grass gets to long get out there and push the mower. Your sad? sit it in for a while sort through the feelings,  figure out yourself for yourself.

I’m not saying you can’t have people in your circle willing to help or listen. But there is a difference between wanting and needing.

What if you had nobody at all would the yard go unmowed, the weeds go unpulled? Would you allow your moods to go unchecked with out someone to vent to or to tell you it will be okay?

All I want you to understand is that your are capable of more then you give yourself credit for, and that tending to your own yard gives you the opportunity to learn and to grow.

You don’t need someone to come to your rescue, confirm or affirm what you need to do or how to do it. You don’t need anyone to save you, you are capable of saving yourself.

Your concerned inner strength.
