In farming, fall harvest is a time for gathering the crops from the seeds planted in late summer. In life, fall harvest is a time for reaping the rewards for seeds planted earlier in the year.
Earlier in the year, we made wishes and planted seeds of hopes and dreams in hopes of seeing them manifest later in the year. Now, the time has come to reap the benefits of those seeds and the energy we’ve put into tending the garden. Now is the time to collect on those dreams, hopes, and wishes. Maybe you wishes for better health, more friends, abundance in finance, or a new home. Some might of dreamed of a relaxing vacation, passing exams, or an addition to the family.
I look back on the seeds I planted, earlier this year, and I can see the rewards of those seeds. I wanted to spend more time with my daughter, travel, and grow spiritually. I wanted a new job in a career loved and an increase in finance. Well, I am now homeschooling my little one and we have been on several vacations, which included her getting her first stamp in her passport. I have definitely grown spiritually. I started my own business and nonprofit. My finances are not where I want them to be but I know with time and patience they will get there.
See, the thing about the harvest is not all your seeds will grow and, sometimes, it may seems like there’s nothing there. But, if you look closely, you can find something to gather. Some hope or wish that surprisingly came true, no matter how big or small. Or, some dream that is taking off, even if it’s just in the beginning stages. Be proud of the energy and effort you’ve put into tending your garden and happily reap your rewards.
