The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
There are many things I wish I had done earlier (or not at all) in my life. I can't change those decisions no matter how much I might wish to do so. What is within my power is the ability to resolve to live differently in this moment.
What changes can be made in each of our lives today? What new patterns can we begin? What new road can we start to travel down that will lead to a better destination?
We can continue to bemoan our previously poor planting skills or decide we will do what we can to create a future that is better than our current circumstances.
