I never thought about it this way but in life we also go through seasons. Sometimes they're cold & harsh marked by struggle and we feel like the sun will never shine on us again, like were falling apart, or not going to make it through.
Don't give up friends. This is just a season, a passing storm.
Spring is on it's way. It's just around the corner.
If you can push through like a mighty oak tree you'll be even stronger & no one knows how far the seeds of your life will travel. Or like the lily which takes time to rejuvenate itself during the winter, you might need to take a moment to stop & evaluate before going further.
You'll be in bloom again under the warm summer sun.
Don't give up on yourself or your dreams.
