We have an apple tree in our backyard and the other day I was thinking about harvesting the apples because they are fairly ripe by this point. As I was considering this I realized we have WAY too many apples for me to take off of the tree and they will go bad because I won’t be able to eat them fast enough.
This then made me realize that the apples will be just fine if I leave them ON the tree. They will be fine because they are connected to their life source. Roots, trunk, branches, leaves, water, sunshine.. these are the things that create the apple and give it the ability to live. It is only when they are DISCONNECTED from their source of life that they die.
Let’s take this same concept and apply it to PEOPLE. When we live our lives in such ways that do not give us MORE life/are disconnected from life, we slowly die. We rot. We “go bad.” But when we are connected to our life source (our passions/favorite hobbies etc) we are FULL of life and continue to grow.
Some food for thought. 🙂
