Branch out

March 12, 2019

It’s what you can’t see, that forms the foundation of who you are. Your stump is the junction between the trunk and a massive structure of roots. A network larger than the canopy of leaves and branches; it is here that life builds foundation and character, continuously collecting nutrient to grow powerful for the future. It is a metaphor for our own family roots. It has a taproot with laterals that hold you safe and secure; it is the powerful foundation, on which we stand.  It is the wisdom of past generations  that hold us steady  like a Eucalyptus Carmaldulensis throughout the rough winds of life. . .  It is your roots that you place in the ground today, that will build the foundation for you and your children tomorrow. Character is not what you see; judge it on depth and breadth. Nor is it what others perceive, as it is the soul of your hidden side that assists you to branch out and enjoy life’s opportunitrees.
