When I went to get in my car from the parking lot, I took a moment to appreciate the prairie that abutted the lot. I was struck by the deliberate line that someone had chosen of where to mow — and where not to mow. The manicured area had no natural definition; it wasn’t someone’s yard or along a sidewalk, rather someone had arbitrarily decided to mow to one spot and to leave the grass next to it to grow naturally.

We could all be so intentional with the decisions that we make in our lives. Say yes to this but say no to that. Leave work at work and focus on home at home. Put this much into savings and what is left goes into checking.

It’s up to you where to draw the line, but once you do, make it a clean separation. Mow just the grasses that are to be mowed and allow the others to go free.
