Six Dresses, May Flowers Edition, Dress Five: Pull the Weeds & Watch Your Garden Thrive

When you’re out there growing stuff – a garden, a career, a life – chances are, you’re going to encounter weeds. In the garden, they can show up as crabgrass or thistle. They may even try to pass themselves off as flowers, in the form of clover or dandelions.

Weeds can grow in personal and professional ways, too. In a career, they can show up as market fluctuations, a bad boss, colleague or employee, or haters trying to take you down. More personally, they can appear as health challenges, relationship issues or parenting struggles.

However they manifest in our lives, weeds are challenges to be overcome on the way to achieving a healthy garden, or a happy life. As gardeners, it’s tempting to focus just on the flowers or the vegetables; the aspects of our gardens that are pretty or that are enjoyable.

But as gardeners, we also need to be vigilant about tending to the weeds. If we let them take hold, they will grow until they threaten the life of our plants. And before we know it, our garden could be overrun, affecting the growth we’re trying to achieve.

Watch the weeds, my fellow gardeners. Get to the root and don’t feel bad about pulling them from your garden, one by one. Then watch your garden thrive.
