I get so stinking impatient with myself sometimes! I am undoubtedly my worst critic. Do you feel that way too?
For instance, I find myself frustrated at battling the “bulge”, or watching that cursed scale yelling at me that I’ve not dropped anything, or worse yet, gained!
Do you find yourself battling the same types of frustration and impatience?
I found the answer to my dilemma in all places, tending my garden. Any of you who regularly garden, especially vegetable gardens will relate and those who don’t, hang with me and I’ll explain some simple truths the garden has taught me to apply to my life (and you can too).
What’s the Goal when growing tomatoes? May sound silly, but what is the reason, why would you grow tomatoes?
Out of all people surveyed, all agree the number one goal for growing tomatoes is TOMATOES.
That simple right? Having reached this goal many times before, I have extra insight into what it will take and roughly how long to reach my goal. Length of time will vary due to weather as well as what type of tomato was planted. The main concept is I will harvest beautiful, tasty tomatoes when their time comes. This is the most typical outcome. You plant tomatoes, take proper care, you get tomatoes.
I could take the lazy route, drop them in the ground and nothing much else. A little water here and there “when I feel like it”. What I’ll end up with is CRAB GRASS! Crab grass will take over, and likely kill off all you hoped for. That old saying, ‘grows like weeds’ is no joke! It grows fast, and will take over everything in it’s path.
Are you a Tomato or Crabgrass?
Will you set your eyes on the goal and stay with it to the end? That’s my tomatoes. I know without a doubt my goal will be reached.
Or will you take the lazy approach and lie there like a patch of Crabgrass, letting bad habits, bad food choices, bad health choices take over and choke out your health and steal your goals and achievements?
- Remember where you came from.
- Remember the health you were in or lack thereof.
- Fix your eyes on where you want to go and stop looking back, stop the excuses!
I’m preaching at ME just as much as you!
Wishing you all the best in Health and Life!
Live Smart! Live well.
