My garden; my life

Sunday, July 28, 2013

For the last three days I've been working on getting my front yard together. Yesterday while pulling weeds I realized the garden was a lot like life (my life). There were so many weeds in there that the life was being choked from what belonged there. Yes, I admit had neglected the garden for quite some time (much like myself). As I began to pull the weeds, I saw that there was a lot of good in there; it just needed the mess removed (much like myself). I missed the first bloom because I put off doing the work because I knew that it was a lot involved, and it would not be done in just one day (again, much like myself). But once I got started, I couldn't stop. I kept pulling and tugging and digging until I had it cleared. I had to dig up a few baby trees. The trees weren't bad, but they didn't belong were they had taken root. It reminded me of some people and situations in my life. Just because it isn't bad doesn't mean it's good for Yandi. I had to remove myself, I mean everything (the good and the bad) that would hinder the my growth (oops did it again) the garden's growth. I'm almost done. Well actually it will never be done because just like life, it will be a continual work in progress. The good thing is the mess has been cleared to give it another chance to thrive and blossom and let is beauty show. Now I'm waiting patiently to see that in my garden and in me.
