“To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.” ~Unknown
There are certain events that can rock us to the core: starting a new job, moving across the country, ending a relationship, and starting a new business. God gives each us a seed. Everyone seed is different. Should not focus on their seed. We must take care of the seed. It’s simple; you can’t have a garden without planting a seed. In the natural realm we’d laugh at people expecting a crop without planting seed. We MUST plant a seed to have a harvest. We should not allow other people to plant seeds of negative in our lives.
What is planting a seed? It’s the simple act of setting something into motion that will help you create the life you want to lead. It’s taking a moment of sorrow and realizing that you can use it to fuel you. That why it so important, to have a vision for your life.
When planting the seed, expect rain. Sometimes, you will need go back and check on the seed. The process is going to be messy and uncertain at times, but know you are not alone in this. Everyone who takes the risk, who digs out and creates a new path, is going to experience this uncertainty. If you want the road that is perfectly smooth, void of bumps or roadblocks, then stay in that safe cubicle. The learning and growing is in the process, as well as the experiences and relationships created along the way.
The font of a seed package is a lot like your Vision. Without it, you’re working hard towards a goal that you can’t define. Many people can’t explain where they are headed to their friends, family, or even themselves. If you don’t have a clearly defined plan, it’s not too late.
Now is the time to rethink your garden, and plant the right seeds.
1. Seeds take time to grow. A whole garden isn’t created overnight, and neither is a dream life. But, by focusing on the positives, and seeing the little seeds that start to peek out from the earth in the form of something new, we can start to see the progress we are making in our journey to start living the life we’ve always wanted.
2. Seeds must change to grow. A seed can’t stay a seed forever. When cared for with nourishing soil, rays of sunlight, and water, they change shape and start to become whatever it is they were meant to be.
To really experience positive change, you too, must let go of your past and embrace the transformation that’s about to take place. Have confidence knowing you will take on a better form, even if it takes time.
3. When a seed flowers, everyone recognizes its beauty.After a seed undergoes a transformation and takes on a new form, everyone appreciates it for whatever it has to offer, whether it’s a smile-inducing sunflower or a crisp carrot.
Each seed has something new, something more to contribute. And how did it get to this point? With time and a transformative change.
Go out there and start planting seeds in your life, no matter how hard or pointless it may seem right now. With a little time, patience and hard work, what now seems like an empty dirt plot will be filled with beauty and growth.
Just like a beautiful flower attracts butterflies, your life will be a magnet to the right kind of people that will truly make it one worth living. See you at the Vision Board Party on 11-11-17 at 4:00pm.
