A lesson from nature

August 01, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I've never made it any mystery that I LOVE... LUV... LOOOOOVE... the details... the things people miss.  The things that may seem so minuscule yet speak volumes about this world around us.  Seeing beyond the surface is a gift.  One that can be both a blessing and a curse, because I see it every where...I see it in people too.  I had a client over the weekend in Fort Worth.  Engagements! And what a fun and funny couple they were.  I'll be finishing their edits this week, and ya'll (yes I typed ya'll - I'm Texan ;) )  AH HEM Ya'll will be getting some really cute peeks of this couple soon.  But.... I digress...back to the lesson from nature.........

 

I arrived early to the location, as I had never been.  Crazy I know..36, lived here my whole life,  and I've never been to the Ft Worth Water Gardens. They have 3 pools, but the pool that struck me most visually was not the active pool that you see in photos frequently.  It was the quiet pool.  I'm a weirdo...I know.  I accepted it long ago.  What makes this place so amazing...is the stillness...the quietness(less the patrons), and the proof of perseverance all around. Nature has an amazing way of pushing where it wants to go and grow.

 

Maybe that's the lesson it's always trying to teach us. If we hold back our true potential, do we ever really know the greatness that we have in us? We all grow but so often we fear change. That fear of change holds us back, and keeps us in our "shell".  Nature doesn't necessarily know these bounds.  It has nothing to fear. Roots push from between man made structures, branches grow, and water flows.

 

 

And in that water...new life abounds.

 

Step into the water of new life. Reach beyond your means. Grow! Learn! Color outside the lines! Love without walls! Live out loud!
