Here is a picture of my stone garden. It sits on my windowsill right next to my desk. I love it, not just because of the irony, but because of the message it reminds me of every day.
When it comes to life, I truly believe that nothing is written in stone. The world is constantly changing and evolving, and so are we. Everything passes. We have experiences, and then we have new ones. I love having this reminder, because when things aren’t going the way I want them to, it’s easy to feel stuck sometimes, like I’m in this rut and things are never going to be different. When I look at this stone, it reminds me that where I am right now is not where I will be forever. Nothing that I am or that I do right now has to be permanent if I don’t want it to be. If I’m unhappy, it won’t be that way forever. If I’m in any way dissatisfied with what I’m doing in my life…I can change it! Nothing is the way it will be forever. Everything has the ability to change. Nothing is written in stone.
I love my stone garden! A whimsical reminder of an important philosophy.
