Are You a Leaf or a Trunk?

Before you answer the question in the title, consider the following.

Leaves add color and absorb sun light. They process carbon dioxide and product oxygen. Leaves bring energy and life to the tree.

Leaves dance in the breeze. They are temporary and short lived. But even the fallen leaves add nutrients to the surrounding soil.

The trunk is sturdy and solid. It is a permanent and essential structural part of the tree. It supports all the leaves, holds them together and lifts them up to the sunshine so they can do their job.

The trunk connects leaves to the ground creating stability. It carries necessary nutrients and water to the leaves so they can thrive.

The tree can’t survive without the leaves and the trunk. One is not better than the other. They are just different parts of the whole.

So now you can answer the question “Are you a leaf or a trunk?”

And my response to your answer will be “Good for you! Be the best one you can be.”

Cheers – DJD
