The day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit

Il mio Tandem / My Tandem

‘Finally’ or ‘after a long wait’.
The word ´Tandem´ reminded me of my favorite quote: The day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit.

In the illustration, we see three time frames: a farmer putting seeds into the ground (starting with your effort and pursuit), raindrops on the water surface (time, continuing endeavors), and pumpkins being collected and cut (the results of your struggles).

A characteristic that I would like to deepen and master about myself is patience. Being able to calmly wait for the outcome. The mentioned phrase reminds me that as the farmer puts the seeds into the dirt, he is not expecting the plant to bear the fruits the next day or next week, but rather he patiently waits and understands that the fruits will be picked when the time comes. In the same way, I shall plant the seeds, water them, and patiently wait for the outcome of events in my life.

And as the translation of ´Tandem´ is  ‘Finally’ or ‘after a long wait’ – hopefully we will pick and enjoy the fruit of our efforts.
