No Matter What You’re Planting, It’s Growing

No Matter What You’re Planting, It’s Growing

A few years ago, my daughter and I took a girls’ trip to San Francisco. While we were there, we went to THE MUIR WOODS majestic Redwood Forest. I have never been quite so awe struck (as to how small we were in comparison to nature) as I was standing there in the middle of those TREES.

I’ve been to the ocean many times, climbed the Leaning Tower of Pisa, bathed in the mud of a Volcano and sat at the VERY TOP of the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, but….. something about those TREES made me feel “small” in a way I’ve never experienced before. 

It was almost impossible to imagine that at one time….. these monstrous TREES were once only a tiny seed. How does this happen? And then it hit me! The answer was….. time to grow.

As each of us are in the middle of something we never imagines possible, I encourage you to take a “pause” and realize….. even though we may feel so incredibly small and completely powerless right now….. REMEMBER, those massive TREES were once small and powerless too. But, time to grow left them in a state of magnificence like nothing else could. 

So….. today, just breathe, and give yourself time to grow. It may be painful, it may be uncomfortable, it may even be scary, but you can do it.

Because nothing INCREDIBLE happens without time to grow.
