Recently my yoga teacher suggested the class think of the phrase everything is new as we moved through the poses. The idea was to pay attention to every aspect of each asana as if we were experiencing the posture for the first time.
I brought home the phrase to use with my garden. Adopting everything is new will not require starting over with new plants nor throwing out accumulated knowledge from my few years of gardening. The phrase simply inspires me to pay attention without overthinking everything.
Observe. Take time to notice.
Everything is new reminds me to focus on the joy of being in the garden and experience gardening anew.
