Marcie and I are loving our daily hikes in the Tennessee mountains on our unfolding adventure. One thing that keeps showing itself true is the beautiful imperfection of nature: Trees that don’t grow straight because another tree has intruded on its space; yet they adapt to keep growing. Winding streams formed by the interruption of stubborn rocks; yet they willingly adjust their path to keep flowing.
Nature, in all of its moments, in all of its seasons, is entangled in beauty.
This beauty unfolds over time; sometimes quietly, sometimes gloriously, sometimes in brokenness, but always in stunning imperfection.
We, too, have our moments and our seasons. We, too, are entangled in our own quiet and glorious and broken beauty. We, too, will unfold into our own stunning imperfection. Trust nature. Trust yourself. Breathe in, let it go, and be you.
