I started this post on the 14th. A few days have passed but I felt it was important to finish it. So here it is for Reverb14 – Day 14.
Today’s prompt and image come from Amy of The Anxious Hippie. The idea of rooting down into your own personal beliefs and center of truth is an ongoing process, and many things can serve as anchors or roots as you move through life.
What rooted or anchored you in 2014?
And where do you want to put down roots in 2015?
I always believe that no matter what, where or when that everything and I will be all right. Time and time again has shown that THIS, whatever is at the time, shall pass. Therefore, how can I ever despair?
What rooted and anchored me in 2014 and for always, is the belief in myself and the Universe. There is a reason and a season for everything under heaven. These roots are strong and run deep and have served me well in this forest. Though life have tried and hacked at me, I remain firmly anchored in my base.
Sometimes I have fallen, but never defeated. Weary, lonely and broken have I been, but I have always risen, reaching for the sun, reaching for another challenge, for another day. I may not be a mighty oak. I’m rather like the slender willow, bending with the wind. I bend but do not break. God has given me a different gift to endure.
I may weep like the willow. It is not a sign of weakness. I’m just easing my pain, recouping and gathering strength. I’m re-rooting for 2015 right here where I am.
