What is growth and is it something we can ever truly work at? I believe it’s an organic natural process that needs nurturing and tending. And it comes in many forms: love, relationships, nature, every day environments, mental stimulus, and more. A tree never stops growing and neither should we. It is true we need to grasp hold of something with our roots, either a place, people, culture, or a lifestyle. But we continue to branch out, to explore, to let the bark of our exterior grow weathered with experience. Yet, unlike trees, we are not meant to be absorbed into a single facet of life. We are dynamic and ever-changing: growing even in our growth.
