What a person perceives as being the easiest or the quickest way in any situation, seems to be what most folks gravitate towards. It’s a characteristic of human nature unless we overrule it when necessary with reason and conviction.
Even when a person finds out the “easiest” or “quickest” way is not in their best interest, many times the temptation remains “to do it anyway”, since they perceive it will solve the difficulty of the moment. And the age old “everyone else is doing it” is a popular “excuse” to do just about anything.
I guess what a person ends up doing boils down to what they do or don’t know and/or how important they think it is to stand for something.
Over my lifetime, I’ve found that standing for something is not the easiest way. It can be very difficult depending on the situation. But I made up my mind long years ago, to force myself to do what I deem is correct, even if it means going against main stream or in some cases – causing confrontation.
If you read TMG regularly, you know that I believe in walking in the direction you want to go in life. Every time you veer from the path, you’ll lose ground and it’s easier to lose track of your direction. If you face the obstacles on the path (even if you have to “rest” a bit before you do it), you’ll get stronger for the next time.
This applies to just about any phase of life I can think of. Even gardening.
What we want for our gardens and how we see the end result will determine what we do.
Everyday you’re given opportunities (in the form of choices) to show what you’re made of. Some of them are seemingly insignificant. Some of them are very significant. But make no mistake, no matter how small it might seem, every decision is taking you towards your goal or away from your goal.
Each decision either makes you stronger or weakens your resolve.
May all your choices be the best! Your garden (and your life) will follow along the path you choose.
