Change the Harvest

Last week I had a blinding flash of the obvious: we reap what we sow.

The brilliant part of this wisdom is that we often reap in fields that are different from where we sow. But no matter where we reap, the principle remains the same – we reap what we sow.
So what do you want? If you want something different than your current results perhaps it’s time to consider the seeds that you’re sowing. If you’re planting gossip, strife, belittling, condescension & insecurity, don’t be surprised when those show up in your life.
On the other hand, planting encouragement, stability, patience & other good seeds produce a harvest after its kind, across a wide array of fields!
Let’s be sure we are planting the seeds that we want to harvest!

purposeful planting

My husband informed me that the rhubarb I planted last year is starting to grow & I’m SUPER excited about this!  I’m very excited because of a few reasons – my grandma had this amazing rhubarb torte recipe that I LOVE to make every summer.  I could pretty much eat the whole thing with no help, but that would be selfish 🙁 Another reason I’m excited is because the planting instructions said that I couldn’t harvest or eat any of it, until it had been in the ground for a year.  That could be considered to be a long time to wait for a rhubarb harvest ,)

So here’s my point, I think we need to be really mindful of what “seeds” that we are planting today because they will be the harvest for your future.  Furthermore, I would suggest that you might take an inventory of the results you currently have in your life, to see what you like & what you don’t like.  From this inventory, you could probably pick out a few seeds that you want to continue to plant (behaviors that you want to continue) & a few seeds that could use some planting adjustments ,)
