NEVER GIVE UP-Success Strategy #4
Valuing life in all forms, I decided to cut my bush back, water both day and night, even talk and sing to it, and see what happens. With excitement I noticed my plant slowly and surely coming back to life. Each branch had new beautiful green growth. It still looked rather scrawny, but far from dead.
Watching this grow, slow but sure, I decided I would write a chapter in my upcoming “Pathway to Limitless Potential” book about being patient, nurturing, and caring for those things; plants, animals, environment, and people, that need a little extra tender loving care. So I took a picture of my plant and began writing, with the intention to take another of my bush when it became vibrant again.
One day I took my truck into the shop for an oil change. Talking to Tom the owner about my bush he told me that his dad desperately wanted to plant an apple tree in his yard. Time and time again the newly planted tree died. After Tom’s dad died, he decided to plant an apple tree. He watered it and sang to it and it grew beautifully.
Now my bush was planted on a slope and water does not stay long in a light rain. It is obvious that for my plant to survive on this slope it needed to be watered frequently for it to survive, and survive it was doing. Each day I watered my bush I noticed new sprouts. I became elated by the fact my bush would soon be beautiful and thriving again.
Then it happened. I came home from work and my bush was gone. The association had uprooted every bush in the development, including mine. I wanted to cry, as if my plant was murdered. I thought…plants today, people tomorrow.
Have you ever felt like you were starting to grow and getting in the swing of things again when all of the sudden you’re uprooted like a worthless piece of junk? Life is certainly full of uncertainty.
Next time you decide to judge a situation, a person, a perception and follow a habitual system, think again. Just think again. Pausing and re-evaluating a situation just may be a huge turning point in your, someone else, or something’s (a bush’s) life.
