"Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap,
but by the seeds you plant."
Robert Louis Stevenson
This has become one of my favorite quotes over the last few years. When I begin to feel the stress that comes from wanting to control how things turn out, I try to hear these words. When those worries that come from wanting everyone to be happy, comfortable and well taken care of take over, I try to hear those words.
Today I can plant seeds. I can be kind, clean a little, prepare a meal. I can craft, chat and cheer others on. Whether those seeds take root, what they lead to or produce isn't mine to judge. Or control. Or worry about.
Off to enjoy the sushine, family and friends waiting for me today!
