Roots

Today I was looking at this basket of rutabaga that I had hauled out of the garden and it made me think.


Roots are then hidden part of a plant... the part that sustains and supports a plant but it’s the part that rarely is seen until the whole plant is pulled out. Only then can you see how deep, and how wide, and how vast the roots are.


I believe the same is true of us... we only allow the pretty stuff to show. We only present the lush, green above the ground.



But the real person, the complete person, the true beauty, and the nourishing qualities grows in the depths... in the dark. Only when pressure and stress and strain are put on us do we release, let go, and allow ourselves to come into the light. Only then can our full potential be realized.



Let your roots show, friends 🌱
