A lot of great life lessons can be compared to gardening and landscaping. A lot of what is posted on this blog will be related to landscaping in general but it may also be related to some good old fashioned truths that are always good to be reminded about.
One lesson I have learned in my life is that good things take time. My college degree, Eagle scout award and service mission are among some of the worthwhile things I have done or earned that took some time (minimum 2 years to be exact).
Landscaping works the same way. If you want a mighty oak in your yard one day, it will have to start out as a small one. Years of pruning, fertilizing and watering are what will help it to grow into what it is meant to be.
So be patient and wait for good things to come. Hard work will always pay off even if it takes a little longer than we like.
