A view from behind the reel this afternoon.. and guess what you can see all the real through the reel.
You see a reel on the combine pushes the crop into the cutter bar…and then through the feeder house and then separates the good(the seed) from the bad (the rest of plant/chaff). The good(the seed) is put in the grain tank, the bad is pushed out the back.
I think this a lesson in itself.. you see recently well majority of my life I have also rooted for people -friends and family-even when those people didn’t cheer back and still do to this day. I try and go above and beyond even for people that don’t in return! WHY? Because that’s how I was raised! I also am my worst critique. I mess up and I sometimes am “negative nancy.”
But you see your the machine like the combine in this instance, you have to begin to separate the good from the bad, you have to drop those who aren’t rooting for you, you have to drop those who don’t check on you, those who don’t support you! You have to drop the negativity, drop the fear and drop beating yourself up over a silly mistake.
But at the same time you need to take those good seeds in life..You have to cherish and put them in your grain tank and hold on to them, even if the bushels are small… family or friends hold them close. Make the auger rain with positivity.
We all need reels in our life, someone who pushes you to your best ability, people that root for you not against you, people that don’t make everything about themselves or a competition. We all need role models and mentors. We all need someone to push you to the next goal, we all need guidance. We all need the reel reals! Not the fake. You have to be honest with yourself just as well as others.
Life lesson moral: find the reels in your life, fill your grain tank with seeds, be your own reel! Life is to short for shitty seeds. Life is to short to waste time, find the fields that grow for you not low ph soils. Grow as it rains.
In other words: Find your family and friends that support you, and cherish you and hold on to them. Cherish them and be their biggest fan and your own! Life is to short to waste your time on people, that don’t give the effort in return. Grow from mistakes, grow from judgement, grow from fear, grow as a person.
Now you reading this, think about your grain tank, does it still have some unthreshed pods or split seeds?
Do those pods or seeds need to be thrown out the back? Maybe it’s a bad decision, maybe it’s a mistake you’ve made, maybe it’s a family member or friend that has let you down…
Whatever it is, be the reel push forward and be the best version of YOU, and do what’s best for YOU!
