seeds of tomorrow

You know, life can sometimes feel like you’re a farmer standing in a field that just didn’t turn out the way you hoped. But here’s the thing – that’s not the end of the story. It’s just a part of it.

Think about it. Maybe you’ve had a project or a dream that didn’t pan out. It’s tough, right? But let’s not stop there. Just like a farmer, we’ve got to keep sowing. Every setback, every missed goal, it’s all just prep for the next big thing.

You might feel like giving up, and hey, that’s okay. We all get there sometimes. But remember, tucked away in these experiences are gems of wisdom, just waiting to be discovered. It’s like getting your hands dirty in the soil, finding those lessons that can help your next attempt bloom.

Picture an artist. Their first few paintings might not be perfect, but each stroke teaches them something new. Or an entrepreneur – their first business might flop, but they come out of it sharper, ready to take on the world.

Let’s not shy away from the challenges. Let’s face them, learn from them, and jump back in with all we’ve got. It’s in these moments that we grow, that we really find out what we’re made of.

And as you think about all this, why not pick something that didn’t quite work out before? Take a fresh look at it. What can you do differently this time? Jot down your thoughts, make a little plan. It doesn’t have to be perfect – just a start.

We’re in this together. Let’s not give up. Let’s adjust, try again, and keep going. Because, in the end, it’s all about sowing those seeds again, no matter how tough the last season was. Here’s to our next harvest – it’s going to be a great one.

before you’re ready

Life will say to you, “here’s a sorrow, let me teach you about strength,” before you are ready. Life will say to you before you are ready, “Here is failure, let me teach you how to develop.” Life will say to you before you are ready, “here is loss, but I will educate you to respect what was while enjoying what is.” Life will say to you before you are ready, “Here is treachery or unkindness, but I will educate you to be loyal, honest, and kind.” Life will say to you before you are ready, “let go of your pride and arrogance, and allow me to teach you humility.” Life will educate you to be bold before you are ready. And when you’re ready, life will say, “Here is everything we deserve and have worked for; it’s up to you to value it.”
