“We’ll get there when we get there!” is one of my favorite quotes from “The Incredibles” movie.

Since I’ve had a yard, I longed to have a picture worthy flower garden. Similarly, I’ve always wanted to be an active person who exuded fitness and positivity. The lessons I learned as a gardener helped me progress to my wellness goals once I stopped investing in quick-payoff behaviors and work toward long-term habit changes.
