It is Time...

I was driving down the street awhile back, and came across this tree. I had to turn around and go back and take a picture. When I saw it, I saw a metaphor for me, and my life...
The tree is standing strong at the base, with branches extending out. The branches that would cover the road and the wires have been cut off, but there are a bunch of little branches starting out. This symbolizes the "control" that we try to put on situations that come up in our lives and the proverbial "Life finds a way".
In my life, I have had highs and lows, as everyone does; however, I used to give up when the lows hit, or just move on to something else. I have notebooks, and files with so many good ideas I've started on, but never completed.
I recently, with some gentle prodding and encouragement from my friends and family, had one of my "good ideas" come to fruition. The utter euphoria and personal satisfaction I felt, astounded me. I was actually giddy with excitement.
For the last few months, I have been hearing the words of Rafiki, from the Lion King (when he realizes that Simba is alive), in my head saying "It Is Time".  I am now planning to go back to some of those files and notebooks and see if "It Is Time" for any of them.
I'm a firm believer that what is to be, is to be...take a little self-inventory, and see if "It is Time" for anything to finally come to fruition in YOUR life.  Some thing, or things, that you have been putting off due to lack of time, or motivation.
Have a good day, and be safe...
