Last year this lupine in my garden was thriving. This spring it didn’t come back. I don’t know why, it just didn’t winter well.
We try hard to understand things that happen so that we can learn from the experience and try to influence outcomes in the future.
And sometimes we do.
But sometimes we just have to accept the ebb and flow of life. Sometimes we don’t figure things out.
And that’s ok.
There will be successes tomorrow or the next day.
There will be moments of smooth sailing and high spirits.
And when things are frustrating or hard to understand, we keep walking. Taking rests at times. Relaxing our minds and letting things be for awhile. Sometimes asking for help from a kindly soul nearby.
When it is time, we’ll find the meaning that will give us the experience and understanding that bring wisdom. And empathy. And human kindness.
Please keep on going and don’t you give up.
