Every action taken
has the potential to grow
It will grow however BIG you want it to
We all know that a woman is a force to be reckoned with
When she sets her mind to something
giving of her; time, love and energy
that “small action”can be cultivated into something
bigger then once imagined.
Take a seed for example
It is so itty bitty
A seed on its own is nothing
But when it is planted in rich soil–
provided water and sunlight
It will grow
It will grow into a beautiful flower, delicious fruit or vegetable
or even a tree
The seed which becomes a plant is remains
fragile and delicate
unless it is continuously cared for
when nurtured properly
it won’t merely transform from a seed to a plant
it will flourish from a flower to a fruit .
Whatever your heart wants to pursue
(be it a new hobby, a new language, an athletic endeavor, launching a new business, leaving a toxic situation)
That pursuit starts off as a seed
An itty bitty seed of desire for something more.
Don’t be afraid!
After all an amateur gardener has the ability to take the first step
all you have to do is push the seed into the earth.
Now you decide
do I step back and hope the seed grows
Or do I pay attention?
Listen to what it needs
And provide it with the proper amount of water,
ensure it is getting the right amount of sun and fertilizer?
Just like a gardener decides what seeds to plant in the garden
You have to decide what you want out of life!!!
What do you want your life to look like?
A seed, a plant or a whole garden?
You have to take the steps to create it.
If you push the seed into the soil and merely hope it will grow
you will be utterly disappointed.
If you sit around waiting for life to happen for you
That’s not how it works!!!
You have to take action
you have to plant the seed
ensure it is getting enough sun.
sometimes you might even have to prune the plant
or take it one step further and de-weed the whole garden.
In the end your garden
will be a perfect reflection
Of how you nurtured a seed.
My hope for you is that you were able to create a whole garden.
