Water the Seeds of Your Life

Consistent and intentional effort is the key to an abundant and meaningful life.

What I mean is that your experience of life isn’t dependent on your circumstances as much as it’s dependent on how much of yourself you devote to those circumstances.

This lesson has been a theme in my life in the last few years, and growing a (simple) garden has made it especially apparent.

It’s my first garden and I’ve killed a few things 🤷🏻‍♀️, but it was clear from the beginning that if I were to grow anything at all I’d have to show up, prepare the beds, plant the seeds (or starts for beginners like me), water them, and generally care for them.

Not just once, but day after day.

This is so obvious in a garden. And although many life-things appear more complicated, what we receive (in our experiences, relationships, goals, etc.) is often contingent upon what we give.
