5 Life Lessons I Learned From My Plants
Lesson #2: We Go Through Phases And They Are Always Changing
When you watch your plants grow over a long period of time, you notice that they go through growth spurts and slumps. I won't treat Money Bags any differently at all, and I'll see that he goes through a month or so where he sprouts new leaves. And then as suddenly as his leaf outburst started, it will stop. Some of his leaves will turn yellow and he won't pop a budder for months.
I used to get freaked out by this and worry he was going to die. Then I realized that this is just how plants do. That's just how all sentient beings do. I try not to get freaked out about my own phases. Sometimes I'm not funny for a few months and I think it's never going to end. And then one day, low and behold, I see a picture of Jon Hamm's balls and my funny blooms again.
