Past all obstacle placed in their way– copper pipes, beer traps, sawdust, organic pellets, crushed egg shells, dried seaweed–slugs and snails deserve much credit for their maneuvering abilities through the land mined vegetable plot. Not all make it to their ultimate goal of a gourmet meal, but enough do. Therefore, viewing border plants as sacrificial has become routine and we grow extra just to feed the walking stomachs–they are for the most part a muscular foot, and the name ‘gastropod’ literally means stomach foot.
don’t think that slow means
not able to reach your goals,
fresh perspective is helpful
Self-doubt can be as great an obstacle as any that is external. Remember, there’s more than one way to get to where you want to go. Sometimes reversing out and looking for new ways to approach a goal, or simply being open to instinct rather than logic, presents possibilities unexpected. Believe in yourself and your dreams and turn mountains into molehills!
