A Lesson Learned

I love to garden it makes me feel so accomplished when I look at the beauty that is created by the plants and watch things bloom. Lately there has been a vine that has “destroyed” my garden area it has pretty much taken over.


So, last fall when it was cool I ripped up most of my garden and tried to remove it. It had other plans it came back worse than before. I was quite disgusted annoyed and well perplexed. I finally asked my gardener who had no idea how to get rid of it.


So, I decided I need to make peace with it accept and try to shape it and plant things in and around it.

That’s when it dawned on me not everything needs to as I intend it. It doesn’t have to be perfect.


It can be cluttered, uneven and imprecise and when I stepped away I thought not bad. It is kind of like life most of the time things are never so precise and calculated.

I am finally OK with it. People say don’t sweat the small stuff.


What they should say is embrace the imperfections in life. That is what makes us unique, different and well, human.
