The last thing most people expected to see or hear from me was an article about gardening… but the last couple of weeks I’ve been spending a lot of time in our garden and having loads of fun doing so. My Grandmother had the most wonderful garden and veggie patch, and I have many fond childhood memories with her digging holes, catching worms and planting seeds and all sorts of mischief in the garden (often involving picking kumquats and turning them into projectiles).
- First you plant the seed, and then you water it.
- Then the next day you water it,
- Then you water it again,
- And the day after that you water it again,
- And you keep on watering it every day.
Just Remember...Never Give Up!
Just remember: Don’t give up, and don’t stop watering the seed before it has the chance to grow. Even if you can’t see the improvement and it doesn’t feel like you’re making progress, your seed is growing under the surface and is getting ready to break through!
As long as you keep on investing time into your guitar practice you’ll eventually develop the skills you can only dream of having now! Never stop learning, and never give up!
