Have you ever set out to do something only to realize that it was going to be a lot harder than you thought? That's what happened to me on Sunday.
I set out to remove a couple of shrub roots from the front of my house. Mind you, I had ZERO experience with just about anything green. But my girls and I had picked out some Hydrangeas and I wanted to plant them.
The first stump came out pretty easily with just a pointed shovel and a saw (oh and a lot of muscle lol). The second one was a completely different story. I dug for what seemed like forever before I ever even hit a root. I was tired, hot, thirsty, frustrated and annoyed.
I persevered. I went back to YouTube for more guidance and I found a video of a man uprooting a small tree. I figured if he could remove the tree and its roots by hand with this method I should be able to get this little shrub root out.
I had to wait until the next day, but with my new tool in hand (and with a demonstration on how to use it from my hubby) I was ready to accomplish my goal. And I did. And it was worth it!
I set a goal. I was met with obstacles. I persevered. I achieved success. In the end it really is that simple. I hope that you find the strength to persevere, to overcome your obstacles and meet your goals.
