How are you growing?

Ever looked at a seed or bulb that you plant in the ground? Seedling  It looks dead but once it hits the soil and you provide it with water, nutrients and  the right amount of light and warmth, something amazing begins.

The seed shows that it has always been alive. 

Because the seed is healthy it starts to grow.  As it grows it begins to change: it is no longer a seed, it has a stem, leaves and changes colour to be able to utilise the light from the sun to grow some more. 

However, as the new plant grows it faces challenges: the rain, the cloudy days, the wind, too much sun. 

And these all have the effect of strengthening the plant in it’s bid to survive, to be healthy, to grow and go on and produce seed which is, after all, the plant’s only aim in life – to reproduce itself. 

Healthy things grow – growth brings change – change brings challenge – challenge brings health – healthy things grow. 

What about you?  Are you Healthy?  Do you embrace change and challenges?  If so, how are you growing?

Mother to two who are now independant and living away from home. Wife to Steve, for the last 26yrs and looking forward to many more years. I have enjoyed 18 months in the Okanagan, something that I have longed to have the opportunity to do for a while. Living a dream, you could say. Now, I am interning with Living Waters Canada based in Vancouver until end of April 2013. I love to grow my own food - it tastes so much better. I also build up, train and encourage others to achieve more than they thought possible.
