Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Why is Monday morning different than any other morning of the week? You can name many things I’m sure, I know I can… But it really boils down to starting the grind again… Finding motivation and inspiration help. If your mentally prepared, it’s just another beautiful day ⛅️ Get up a little early, and find that mental clarity, that place of Zen 🙏🏻

Thanks to my Waterfalls, I have a ‘Place of Zen’ to return to. A Waterfall will help you clear your mind, slow your heart rate and aid in mental focus. Enjoy your day 🌞

A beautiful Monday morning in the Fall. A time when we all need a moment of Zen…

Southing sounds… I can sit and listen to my Waterfall for a few minutes, and something happens. I feel relaxed… But energized! My stress level goes way down & my mind comes back into focus… It’s almost magic how it works every time 🌊

I hope this moment of Zen helps you to have a Great day!

Hump Day Koi Story – “Koi No Taki-Nobori” | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Many people will tell you that most everything that’s worth anything, starts with a good story! I have found this to be very true across the board. A story that hooked me many years ago is an ancient one, but still packs a wallop today! It’s the story of the Dragon Koi’!

In this story the Koi is so strong and spirited that it can swim & fight its way up through the rapids & waterfalls to become the Dragon. The Koi is a symbol of power and success!

In this ancient story a large school of golden Koi are swimming upstream in the Yellow River in China. They make it all the way to the  raging waterfalls at the top, but all the fish but one is washed back down the flow. But, the one Koi is determined to make it! He spends 100 years trying & trying to make it up the waterfalls, until one day he finally does it. The gods recognized the Koi’s perseverance & determination and as a reward turned him into a Gold Dragon, the very image of strength & power!

“Koi no taki-nobori” means “Carps Climbing the Waterfalls”. Koi have been a revered animal in China and Japan for many, many years and today are here as well.
I hope you enjoyed this little ode to the Koi today 😊 Think of the Koi as a symbol of energy, power & courage. These traits help us to overcome difficulties in life. Just sitting by the pond and feeding your Koi can bring peace and happiness into your day.
Happy Pondering! Enjoy your Koi 😊
