What I must keep in mind…

garden as life

We cannot experience the fulfillment and joy that arise from our triumphs if we are not subject to our losses. To have the capability to harvest vegetables albeit a modest amount from unfavorable soil conditions (for which I am responsible) is still a victory similar to experiencing a wonderful weekend with an old friend set against the backdrop of quite possibly a wretched work week.

When the feelings of pleasure and happiness from the positive experience surpass the effects of the unavoidable losses, count yourself blessed. If they don’t, the season isn’t over. Keep tilling (or add some compost).
