Our front lawn had a small patch of clover.

It seemed small and insignificant, so I left it.

Then it grew larger and larger, gradually taking over.

Until the rest of the grass was overwhelmed.

That clover represents our negative thoughts.

They start small, but if you leave them, they are joined by other, similar, sinister thoughts.

Unattended, they grow and grow, taking over your mind until after a while there seems like there is nothing else.

Don’t let the clover take over.

Deal with it before it grows.
