When the Harvest is Slow by Jodi Crane

Sometimes the harvest is very slow.  You plant something and it takes years to bloom or bear fruit.

The same can be true for your dreams.  It may feel like your dreams are on hold, but it’s just not the right time yet for them to bloom.

This doesn’t mean your dreams aren’t important.
It doesn’t mean they’ll never happen.
It doesn’t mean you aren’t deserving of your dreams coming true.

It can be so hard to be patient.  It can be very discouraging to work so hard and it seems like nothing happens.  Believe me I know.

Then you turn to social media and see others having their dreams come to fruition.
“I’m working hard too,” you say.  “It’s just not fair.”

It isn’t.  And it sucks there’s often no one to blame.  But you’re probably comparing apples to oranges.  So turn away from the social media and be compassionate toward yourself.

Sometimes you need to take a roundabout way to get there.
Sometimes you need to take the scenic route.
If you’re always in a rush, you’ll miss the beauty along the way.

This harvesting of dreams really is just one giant mystery.
So hang in there.

Jodi Crane has harvested some dreams while others are slow growing.  She is a play therapist, professor, creative, and player.  Find her here.
