Gardens demand a lot of effort from their caretakers. To survive, they require nourishment and protection; they need food and water to grow and reach their potential. They also need to have their weeds removed so that the plants won’t be robbed of essential nutrients, moisture, and sunlight.
Weeds are nasty living creatures that steal the beauty and energy of the plants. Their existence weakens the root systems of the garden and prevents the crops to thrive in a healthy environment. Removing them from your garden is always the best choice. Other gardening tools can do the job, but a weed whacker does it best.
So, what can these garden weeds teach us about life?
Fertilizers can prevent weeds to develop but using cheap ones isn’t effective. The lesson here is to invest in things with quality. Invest in your dreams if you want them to turn into a reality. If you want your garden to reach its full potential, then you should spend sufficient resources for it to grow.
Pulling out weeds without a weed eater or by hand without leather can cause your hands to suffer. Weeds can torture your hands especially if you have little tolerance for pain. It’s the same thing with life. Weeds can represent the thorns that try to weaken your heart to make you suffer. These thorns can penetrate your heart easily if you don’t have protection. The leather gloves or the weed whacker is your strong faith. If you have one, you can overcome every suffering in life. The only way you can remove those thorns in your life is to have unshaken faith that can help you withstand the pain and trial.
Be careful about allowing weeds from entering your life! A garden full of weeds begins with the growth of a single weed. Be cautious by evaluating everything that you allow to come into your life. Will it be a bad influence? Don’t do it. Is the person toxic for you? Say no. Avoid dangers from the start, and your life will be a garden of blooming flowers.
If you just realized that you’ve allowed weeds to grow in your life garden, then you need to remove them. Pull them out by the roots. It’s the only way to get rid of them altogether. If it’s a toxic friend that continues to hurt and use you for his/her gain, stay away from him/her. If it’s your boss that abuses you and doesn’t teach you anything in life, then look for another job. Be thorough in removing the weeds from your life. If you only cut them, they’ll still bother you someday, but if you pull them by the roots, they won’t have the chance to rob you of your happiness again.
Always pull out weeds and clean up your garden. Don’t let your laziness rob the health of your garden. It’s the same thing with life. Evaluate your life often and clean it up by getting rid of bad habits. If you want a happy life, you have to work for it. And consistency is the key.
