What My Trees Taught Me about Perseverance

I have always been amazed by the trees along the fence line of my yard. They managed to persevere and shape themselves around the obstacles in their way as they grew.

Many of them have chain link fence that goes right through them. Others have poles or pieces of brick integrated into them in odd places.

Whatever their challenges have been, they never fail to inspire me to be flexible with what life brings and never give up because with perseverance comes growth.

I hope these wise, flexible, and powerful trees inspire you as much as they do me.

    This is amazing. Their growth is so slow and steady that you don’t recognize how they’ve worked their way around or through obstacles until long after it’s done.

    Yes! This was an inspiration.

      Flora: They were already like this when I moved here and I can only imagine what it looked like over the years. I have been mesmerized by them since I first noticed them a couple days after I arrived. It’s really nice to move somewhere with inspiration just waiting in the yard.
