Garden/life standards

Be a watering can in a desert, not a lit match in a dry forest.

Many are quick to judge when it comes to someone else’s backyard experiment! 

That looks trashy!

She doesn’t have that designed well at all…

It looks okay – for an amateur

These are comments you’ll hear and see from wannabe gurus…

Being hurtful and narrow minded is their specialty! So let’s unfocus on those people.

Here’s the problem: one day you’ll put your self and your products and other things of your creation out there for people to see you might even put it online for people to judge.

It’s right at that moment that you have entered the world of over judgemental, highly critical people. You are in there around now and don’t expect fair treatment.

I don’t think about it too much! You can start to become highly critical of yourself even though you have followed a good game plan and you have awesome results. But they have planted the seed in your garden, and that seed is doubt!

There’s a gigantic difference between asking for criticism constructive if it can be, and then chaining yourself to the whipping post saying Take Your Best Shot.

But let’s go back, you need not to think on that so much. There are a lot of people out there who don’t produce the same results as you who really just want to critique your work. Sometimes they have a good point and you should take that point and run with it even if it has some negative in it. Sometimes people aren’t able to use their criticism without adding in a little stuff here and there on your personality or personal design. Just keep in mind, this is an online world and with an online world comes online trolls you heard the word before. This is an example of what they do.

Best thing to look for is a good teacher and a good host. And to be the same is such a relief to those who are healing from Burns and other battle wounds via the Internet.

In closing I will say that I will do my best to be helpful and to teach as much as I can and I ask you to do the same with me and others. The watering can in a desert, not a match in a dry forest.
