Truth.

Its leave raking season for me, so I've been contemplating my tree rather heavily.

Lol.

Yeah, I hear that.. I actually believe our oldest instincts revolve around our lives in trees. Not like Darwin’s evolution or anything, but humans and trees are connected at the hip (pun intended).

What do you think leaves falling symbolizes in us?

Birth, life, decay and death, a glorious fall only to be born again better than before.

We all follow the same patterns, no matter how hard we try not to.

There is no birth without death. I know the old me died the day I held my first boy. I stopped being who I was as soon as I heard that cry.

I think leaves falling symbolize the parts of ourselves that we shed to live through the winter of our own losses. Nothing can remain the same forever, so if we don’t make room for change then we’ll be frozen in place to the detriment of our personal growth.

Each season a tree sheds it leaves, they grow back stronger, more robust, they learn and adapt.

All reality is circles, cycles, growth and death, rebirth.

We all shed our leaves from time to time.

My mom, before she passed early, liked to say that people seem to come full circle and reinvent themselves every five years or so.

I don't know if she was right, but I like to think she was.

People go through seasons in their lives, most totally unaware, but some can see.

You can learn a lot from a tree.
