It is hard to find individuality sometimes. I took a walk recently; couldn’t walk and contemplate anything, so walking slowly and taking in nature helped. I was thinking about the struggle of individualism and identity and how it affects so many people. It doesn’t matter what stage they are in life, the struggle is always evolving. I stumbled upon this old tree that early morning, and I watched as the branches all seemed to be doing their own thing, yet all were headed for the sunlight.
I wondered if they compared themselves to each other? Do they feel envy, pride, or even frustration? Or perhaps their sole focus, was on growing toward the sunlight. Every branch takes it’s own path to the top. Nature teaches us so many lessons. It’s your path; your journey. Keep growing.
