Pulling weeds seems to be a never ending project, we always have them popping up in our yards or gardens, we dig at them, spray them, and for the pretty ones we wait until the yellow flower becomes a white globe and blow the seeds into the wind, you know you have done this before.
Life is like a garden; you cultivate the soil and plant flowers that will beautify your home and make everything smell nice, you plant vegetables and fruits that will nourish your body and feed your family, but in the midst there always seems to be a yellow flower that comes along and even though it may add some color to your life for a while, it soon turns into a white globe which explodes and covers all your hard work with more weeds than you can imagine.
We all have problems and there is nothing that can be done about that fact, other than to deal with each one as it comes along, take one problem at a time and deal with it accordingly, place it into a bag so to say so that it will not explode and make a bigger mess, there are no set solutions to life’s problems other than to face them head on, nothing is ever accomplished by turning your back on it.
Like a dandelion patch that you ignore will cover your yard and produce many yellow flowers, they may add some color but you really have a problem now, a problem which you ignore will continue to grow also, turning your back does not fix it, worrying about things from your past and trying to hold on to something in your rear view mirror is like grasping for the dandelion seeds blowing in the wind, catching them is almost impossible and if you do catch them will only grow into more problems than you want.
Treat your problems like a dandelion, take one at a time and dispose of it in the proper manner, because you know as well as I, if you blow it there will only be more weeds to pull.
