Tending the garden of the heart - Day 17
We've decided to start our garden this year because we have a large family and it will cut down on the cost of our grocery bill. Because we have so many apple trees in the backyard, we were able to cut down on our expenses on purchasing fruits last year.
We decided to take it a step further this year, so we could also save on vegetables and just spend cash on those items we can't grow. Not only are we going to save in the summer and fall, but with proper planning, we'd also save during the winter months, as well. If you've ever done any gardening, you'd know that it's hard work, but the pay off is worth it.
When embarking on any change, you must determine your reason for doing so. This will be the finish line you're targeting to reach. Your reason or some call it your 'why' is your motivator for enduring the difficult times.
Your 'why' must be compelling enough to keep you going through the tough times. If it's wishy washy, you'll find yourself slacking off and finding other more enjoyable events to engage yourself in.
Determine your 'why' today and make it a strong one.
