Don’t be fooled by the title! I am not giving up some meaningful dream, or exiting a relationship.
I am just throwing in the towel for my garden… this year anyway.
Last year I gave it a go and it was fun and rewarding. This year I have added to my normal life responsibilities: schoolwork, blog writing, and helping out at Kitsap Crossfit . It’s just too much, and the garden falls short in terms of importance.
I have finally come to peace with it today. I will probably keep my strawberry plants, but every thing else will be ripped out and mowed down. It looks like a wild field anyway. And it will give my pup more romping room.
Sometimes it is ok to give up on something if you are gaining time spent on more important dreams and goals.
As much as I like the idea of growing my own food, I am happy to frequent my local farmers market and buy food from people who are passionate about what they do! I will be supporting my local economy and gaining time and mental energy to move forward towards my future…Business degree, Blogger, CrossFit gym owner and trainer.
Sounds like by giving up I am really gaining more!
Have you given up on something because you had more important things to do? Did you regret it or feel that it was the right choice? Tell me about it in the comments!
