Hi guys, I hope you are all doing fine.
How many of you are getting into the festive spirit? Lols I ain’t there yet sha 🙃..
I made a new friend , yaay .. is it disturbing that I connect with children more ? Either way I love children 🦋💕..
My new friend Phoebe , a nine year old had a science project and I was privileged to watch and witness it .
Her science project was on plant requirements to grow . Which involved planting bean seeds in different soil textures and mediums .
From the left we the
Corn planted in soil and watered regularly.
bean planted in water ,
bean planted in soil with kerosene added
Bean planted in soil with 5cm water
Bean with its skin peeled planted
Beans planted in soil no water added
Bean planted with a lot of water
Then beans planted and watered every other day .
Then the waiting game began.
Only two sprouted .
The first to germinate was the corn that was watered regularly. Don’t get confused 😀,
Phoebe’s teacher I think is trying to make a point here . You cannot plant corn and expect beans to germinate .
Relating it with “adulting”
You cannot plant corn and expect beans to grow
You reap what you sow . Whatever you want plant it , water it , work for it ,wait for it , believe and watch it germinate.
The second was beans planted in soil and watered every other day
It sprouted but took a bit longer to as it didn’t get enough water as the corn.
Relating this to “adulting”
Everyone has their own circumstances/factors surrounding the outcome of events . Be in competition with nobody. Because you haven’t “sprouted” yet doesn’t mean you wouldn’t. Do not compare yourself to others because they might have a steady water source and you don’t . That doesn’t make you less of a person. Worry over such things might only slow you down . In all this life is an intertwined personal race.
When it’s your turn it will happenthat_Idoma_geh
If you not root/plant yourself in the right medium you will not grow .
Stay positive and moderate .
Certain circumstances are comfortable and it’s ok if you are satisfied with it but to grow you must break out of your old self just like the bean .
Certain mediums look like what we need , just the way kerosene looks like water but it’s poisonous to us. Stay away from such .
Let your Soul,Mental health, Growth process, etc not be poisoned by such things .
Be careful out there folks .
Be kind .
