Grown up trees : An observation

Here are some pictures from my morning walk.

Here’s my observation:

As a child I liked to draw trees. Those trees were always so symmetrical- straight-tall-trunks-roughly-round on top.

Real trees – Grown up trees are not so perfectly planned. Grown up trees – like we grown ups – recognize that life is not symmetrical – life is wondrously full of twists, turns, bends and stretches.

Grown up trees lean toward the light and yet still grow in unpredictable ways, as they survive the slings and arrows of their tumultuous days while growing and stretching on their more sublime days. Grown up trees are bolder and more beautiful than my innocent, youthful cartoonish trees. They are much more interesting too!

I am seeking to discover, find and share salt and light into the world. After growing up in financial poverty, but with a wealth of loving people lifting me up all along the way, I struggled for a good while to "do it all on my own." Until I finally found something indescribable in a mere "about me" section of a blog. Now I have the peace that discovery provides as well as the overwhelming urge to share everything I can with as many as I can. I am now trying to use those life experiences, my formal and informal education, and my over 25 years of human resources and leadership experience to have a broader conversation with the world about that something, that Light, and about Love and Leadership...with a dose of Laughter along the way. 4 Ls to Live by and to Soar by: Four for Soaring.
