Let It Be

Some years the spring rains stick around for a long time causing cool weather well into the summer, stunting the growth of most plants.  Some years the tomatoes fail.  Some years the squash aren't too productive.  Some years the strawberries are awful.  Some years the cucumbers cease to grow.

You can't control any of this, you can only control how you react to it.  You can't change the weather.  You can't force the plants to do anything.  There are so many factors that are in the hands of the universe and well outside of your jurisdiction.

Some years the temperatures get hot in the early spring causing the summer plants to take off early and be extra productive.  Some years there are literal wheelbarrows full of tomatoes and squash.  Some years there are more cucumbers than you know what to do with.  Some years the berries are amazing.

You cannot see the lightness without the darkness.  That contrast is needed so don't fight it.  Don't try to control what you literally cannot control.  Accept what happens and move on.

Each year is different from the last, don't fret.  This is part of what makes our world unique, interesting, exciting and beautiful.  What fun would it be if everything was always the same?  If everything always went well, you would not appreciate it.

Accept what is thrown your way, make the best of it, breathe deeply, and enjoy!
