I went for a walk last night and I noticed a tree in the neighbors yard. It had split down the middle and half of it was still standing while the other half was on the ground. I remember times I’ve felt this way. When my world had been turned so upside down that I felt half of me was destroyed or I was missing the very heart of me. What now I thought as that tree stood there completely exposed? It could never be put back together and it looked very different than it did a day ago.
The truth is when half is all we have it becomes our new whole. There’s a period of transition that is difficult even uncomfortable but eventually we start to grow new branches we didn’t have before. The sun will still come up tomorrow and slowly but surely we will begin to adapt. The transformation may just surprise you and you may end up even more whole and beautiful than ever before.
