60 Mindful Minutes

May 17, 2022

Have you ever felt stuck, lost, uninspired, or simply bored? When we’ve left a houseplant too long in a pot that’s too small, the plant will eventually stop growing and die. We humans are not much different. In her new book, Repotting Your Life: Sense When You’re Stuck. Explore What’s Possible. Claim Room to Grow, author Frances Edmonds explores how we can look at our lives and see when we’ve become pot bound, or said another way, in need of growth and change.  We’re designed to grow and flourish. Sometimes the answer is to repot.
