After lots of hard work preparing the soil, growing, planting, weeding, and watering, I am finally able to start seeing the results of all of my hard work. We have been happily enjoying strawberries, lettuce, string beans, romano beans, and zucchini straight from the garden. The tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, broccoli and more are also well on their way. What’s this have to do with health and wellness you ask?
Well, besides having healthy, organic produce growing in my own garden, this really serves as an analogy.
Sometimes, the things we do for our health and wellness are a little bit like gardening. We might not see the results immediately and heck, when we are working hard, it may in fact seem like we will never produce results. Do you know what I mean? You might be trying and trying to eat well but not seeing the numbers on the scale go down or your family changing their eating habits.
The garden also requires constant care. The weeds are always growing and it seems like there is always more to clean. Just like our bodies, minds, and spirits. We are always in need of cleaning out the junk to make room for new, beneficial growth.
Just like my garden though— you will reap the fruit of you labor! Hang in there and you WILL see the results!
