Dodinsky: In The Garden of Thoughts – Healthy Positive Mind –
Dodinsky is the author of the New York Times bestseller, “InThe Garden of Thoughts”, which has also been published in Germany, South Korea, China and Latin America.
His intent was simply to share his reflections about life in order to help heal the wounds inflicted by life’s troubles. At the time, the man known by his readers as Dodinsky had no idea that within months of starting his blog “In The Garden of Thoughts”, thousands of readers would find healing through the modest words he planted.
“I was humbled to see that in my own little way, I was affecting the lives of others,” says Dodinsky.
To worry is the worst way of predicting what will happen next. It achieves nothing while consuming a lot of your time and energy. Let things unravel, and trust in your ability to overcome whatever comes your way. — Dodinsky
The focus of Dodinsky’s short writings–love, compassion, growth, tolerance, and self-worth–clearly resonate with his readers, whom Dodinsky calls “gardeners.” His page has become a community in which people from all walks of life share their own stories.
Allowing people inside your life is a beautiful thing. Letting go of people who drain your spirit is another beautiful thing you can do for your life. The key to being happy is knowing you have the power to choose what to accept and what to let go. — Dodinsky
“I truly believe that within us, there is a Garden of Thought in which we can find solace whenever we are going through a storm. The response to my work shows that there are many on the same path. Each of us needs words that bring comfort, and an understanding that one is not alone when facing adversity.”
Neglect is often the slow poison in a relationship. The wound it causes cannot be mended by begging to be heard and acknowledged. To do so will only lead to further harm of your worth. It is very painful to release what you had hoped for, but letting go of someone who overlooks what they have in you is a good investment for your future. — Dodinsky
Today Dodinsky’s intent, like the man himself, has blossomed: he’d like to be able to give his “gardeners” the gift book they often request.
Dreams are lost when you allow temporary missteps to lead you to despair. You must not let a few mistakes become a way of life. Begin again. Your persistence will eventually lead you to your true path. — Dodinsky
