Gardening to be Bold

September 26, 2016 — by Ian Ritter

Let’s face it, you don’t always get good seeds in life, and sometimes, you don’t have a clue what kind of plant is going to grow from some random seed that life haphazardly tossed in your way. bad-apple Hell, you may have even tripped on it and skinned your knee.  But I can tell you what, life is about experience and if you don’t sow a seemingly good seed when you get it you’re gonna miss out, because until you give it a shot, you’ll never know what could be.  So, plant that fucking thing, water it, and take good care of it!  The worst thing that happens is that you get to be a gardener for a moment in time.  If it doesn’t work out, fuck it, at least you tried.

it-is-what-you-make-of-itThings don’t always need to make sense to you in order for them to be epic.  If you have your bases covered, have faith in yourself to explore what is happening.

Be bold, not shy.  Be courageous, not timid. Be vulnerable, not invincible (because you are in fact, not invincible).  Accept and embrace the fact that those things which are incredible, are often scary and surrounded by uncertainty.  courageLook that fear, uncertainty and scariness in the face, accept that you will be roughed up a little and press on with honesty, trueness to yourself and trueness to an yone else involved.

Only by accepting the perils, are we fully able to accept the beauty of life when we are so lucky to find ourselves in the situations which include that amazing, rare, precious, delicate, tender, intense, magical, and life sproutbringing feeling of sowing seeds to grow moments in time.
