Plant Your Seeds with Intention: An Ode to Early Spring and New Beginnings by Katie O. Selvidge as Featured in The Pioneer Issue
Plant Your Seeds with Intention by Katie O. Selvidge
They say it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. But when you’re at the start, it’s important to start with intention, with the end in mind. Whether it’s a new adventure, a career, a relationship - before you buy the plane tickets, file for business or say yes to that Friday night date; what do you want the ending to look like? Or feel like?
Plant your seeds with the intention of developing deep roots. Plant not for a quick harvest, but for a lasting harvest. Take notice of the soil. Be mindful of the conditions. Patiently, with love and caring, allow your seedling to grow steadily and persevere to full maturity.
The beginning is always exciting. An intentional start has the best chance to develop into an intentional ending, but only if it is cared for daily. So take notice of the community you’re cultivating. Be mindful of why you are starting this journey. Prune your heart of the rot and decay caused by worry and comparison. Replenish your heart and mind with truth and love for what is righteous and just. Never fear, but persevere. Take your road and live the journey. Wait, trust patiently with hope and anticipation and you will win.
