When you look at a tree, what do you see? A tree, right? A tree doesn't pretend to be a flower or a shrub, just because it doesn't want to be a tree anymore. The same is true for each of us. For better of worse we are who we are with each experience adding a square to the completely unique quilt of our life.
"For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain." - Henry Longfellow
Don't resist the moments to come. Let them flow. If you're sad, be sad. If you're lost, be lost. There is solace in this. Breathe in and start again, releasing the past. A new moment, a new day awaits. How will you answer its call?
