Plant Your Garden

June 2, 2017

I grew up on a hobby farm in north central Pennsylvania. For me this time of year has always been about planting.  As I have grown older, my garden has always helped me to process through things. There are simple rules that if you follow them, you have a high chance of a good harvest at the end of the season.

  1. Preparation: In the fall, I’ll put leaves and grass clippings over my soil to act as a fertilizer over the course of the winter. Make sure you keep weeds out of the garden.
  2. Plant: Buy the right seeds and plants for your area.
  3. Water: Plants, especially when young, need plenty of water. I also try to fertilize once a week or every other week.
  4. Weed: I try to weed daily so that my garden doesn’t get out of control, and my plants won’t grow.

Growing a garden has many parallels to life. Many of you are deciding if you should go to nursing school. It is as simple as gardening.

  1. Preparation: Do your research. Think about what you want in your life and develop a plan to follow so you can succeed.
  2. Plant: Sign up and start nursing school.
  3. Water: Nursing School is hard. Make sure you take time for yourself. This can be spending time with your family, going to the spa, or a nice getaway, etc.
  4. Weed: There will always be negative people. Don’t let them stop you from following your dream.

You are choosing a field that helps people. You are a vibrant and strong individual. Don’t let that fade when times are tough. Take the next step.
