“Although the life of a person is in a land full of thorns and weeds, there is always a space in which the good seed can grow.”
– Pope Francis

- What thorns and weeds exist in your life? What thorns and weeds contributed to you engaging in policy-violating behavior?
- Where are the spaces where “the good seed can grow” in your life currently? Consider your values, priorities and support system. Consider your goals and your involvement on- and off-campus.
- How can you remove thorns and weeds in your life and create more room for the good seed to grow? What are some realistic, specific and concrete steps?
