We need to be careful where we sow ourselves. If we are in the midst of weeds- we'll be competing for nutrients, and in poor soil- we cannot be strong. If we choose the security of a spot shaded by a house or a tree-we won't be exposed to the elements enough- we will rely on that protection and never reach our full potential.
Plant yourself in a spot where you can feel the warmth of the sun, a place where the rich earth will nourish you, and even experience the occasional rain storm; select a place where you are exposed to the elements a little bit...because that is what makes us stronger. And if for some reason the place you choose isn't where you end up, make the most of it.
Because you started out in a place that is good for you, you have made yourself stronger, and can survive any flood, drought, or breeze that tries to make you weak.
