Wisdom from Kongit Farrell

Your life is a seed and life is a series of seasons.

What do I mean by this? Well, imagine that planet earth is a huge garden and that each individual life is a seed. A person’s environment becomes their garden and each person is their own gardener.

If a gardener does not understand that his seed needs to be protected in a safe garden environment and nurtured regularly; or that it will only sprout after a cycle of seasons passes, he might starve his seed, dig it up prematurely or let other gardeners or bad weather prevent it from blossoming.

The same goes for life: We must protect ourselves from harmful environments and the people, things, and situations that don’t nurture us.
