Be extraordinary!

plow

(And no, it isn’t spelled wrong πŸ˜‰ In the UK it’s ‘plough’, in the US it’s ‘plow’. I’ll go with the US spelling today πŸ˜‰ )

Before a farmer plants his crop, he plows the field to prepare the soil. This turns over the top layer of soil and brings fresh nutrients to the surface. Sometimes he adds fertiliser and plant food, to ensure growth and healthiness for his crop.
Then he plants the seeds, waits for growth and reaps his harvest.

I know that you know. But I’m just going to remind you anyway πŸ˜‰

We all have plans, dreams and hopes. But we’re never going to see them to fruition if we don’t prepare and then take action. Thinking about them is good. Thinking about the ways we can prepare is good. Researching those ways is good.

But nothing is going to happen until we actually apply them, and get plowing!Β 

It’s not always easy, I know. But there are no rainbows without the rain. You have to start somewhere and at leastΒ try!

And remember :

failure

 

In the words of Jimmy Johnson :

”The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra!”

  1. I always tell people that it’s not hard to be exceptional as so much is mediocre these days. Just a little action and effort seems enough to rise above so much. Dreams are the precursor to reality for those who dare believe and act.

  2. Good morning my friend hope you are having a wonderful Thursday and that everything is going well 😊.
    I would also like to thank you for your timely reminder because in all honesty I sometimes feel overwhelmed and find it easier to do nothing however the down side to this is that I then give myself a really hard time.
    Take care my friend and enjoy your day 😊 πŸ€—πŸŒΉ

    1. Some days we DO just need to do nothing – we all need to rest and enjoy the peace and calm of nothingness. That’s where thought comes in. And thought is a good thing! It really is. The important thing is to not stay there…in thought.
      So if you’re feeling overwhelmed… rest and think.
      And then get going when you feel better πŸ˜‰
      Hope you have a super day too! ❀

  3. You are awesome my friend! I love how you always encourage others to live their best lives. πŸ€—

    This makes me think too – as the plow goes deep into the land – there may be messy roots and weeds needing to be dealt with. Without removing the weeds, they will reproduce after their own kind and absolutely take over! The process of de-weeding and uprooting can be extremely painful, but leaves us with a truly clean slate in the end!

    It is the courage to continue that counts, indeed. Love this!

    Thank you for being you, sweet sis. You’re a blessing! β™₯

    1. You hit the nail on the head, Holly. Growing and having the joy of the harvest sometimes means the pain of having to dig deeper and get rid of the things that could threaten it!

      Courage to continue, and acting on it, that counts!!! Big time! πŸ˜‰

      Much love to you, and cyber hugs and prayers. ❀ Thank you for being you!
