Years ago when we first bought our land to put our house, the property was covered in weeds.
Not just any regular weeds, they were thick, bushy, and hard to control.
We plowed the property and planted grass seed. We watered it constantly and anytime a weed would try to make its ugly appearance, we would mow it down.
Eventually, we had a beautiful luscious lawn.
As time went on, being the yard was so big, it became too troublesome to keep up with. So we would “put off” mowing parts of it. We would always say, we will get it next time, but next time never came.
At first, the grass just got thick and tall. Then out of know where, the weeds were back and unmanageable. Before we knew it, our grass was gone in those areas.
This didn’t happen over night, it happened slowly.
Sometimes we tend to do that with ourselves. We let the stresses of everyday life consume us and we forget to nurture ourselves.
Then, before we know it, we are so full of anxiety and grief that we have forgotten how to be happy and how to enjoy life.
Don’t forget to take care of you. Don’t forget to fill your cup. Don’t put off mowing your grass, even if the yard seems too big. Weeds will eventually make their way thru, if you don’t take care of you.
Even if it’s just a little bit at a time, a little bit is better than nothing.
