Why i love mental gardening

Yesterday i was making dinner and discovered a baby spider trapped in the pot i needed.

At first i thought it was a piece of dirt because (i assumed) it was balled up in fear. But when it spread it’s legs and began moving, i realized the tiny speck was alive. i released the spider outside.


What seeds would i want to plant today that won’t benefit me or anyone else until years down the road?

What seeds did i plant yesterday?

Do i truly believe that tiny actions will reap a harvest sometime in the future?

Or am i too impatient to wait, so i don’t plant?

And then in the future, there’s nothing, or little, to harvest.

Guess what happens to my attitude (or yours) when this happens.
