A Kind Reminder on Growing

Blessings do not always associate with succession. We are blessed with personal roots, only now our mind needs to follow through a critical successive stage before we can grow and soar. And fertilizer does not include.

Should you ever have a visit to a factory and observe how both labours and machines operate to produce certain products, you will notice that all of the items are given certain identification, i.e. brand name, unique packaging, and barcodes to separate them from the competitors. Indeed, those products are created as differently, as strikingly characterized as possible to capture our attention as customers. We might end up purchasing the one with the best design without knowing that it contains practically same ingredients with the other.

No, we are not going to expansively elaborate how most companies get to trick us, rather such simple fact serves us a gleam into human’s incomprehensible stage of life. A rather ironically comparison, as such, the factory ventures into producing items that look the same and molds them in a way that they look extraordinary when placed in racks. Humans? Born in different families, being raised in heterogeneous circumstances, yet there is always a tendency of stepping back when it comes to showing differences.

Each person’s root is undeniably constituted of various events in his/her earlier life stages and those experiences pile up one day at a time. Per say, our yesterdays create our today, as our today forms our tomorrow. 

While the conversation does not float around us being compared to factory finished items, the comparison brings a point. Although tracing back humans’ biological root sounds like a scientific improbable business, at least until currently, we can definitely spare some time to ourselves and ask “what am I made of?” Thus, we define the root ourselves. Each person’s root is undeniably constituted of various events in his/her earlier life stages and those experiences pile up one day at a time. Per say, our yesterdays create our today, as our today forms our tomorrow. From this point on, it is clear that everyone has composed inimitable stories that belong only to each of them.

Then why would we only want to be as good as someone else?

Having a start that has been shaped so gracefully different by the universe, it is then our turn to grow the root to be a healthy and fruitful plant. Our privilege is that we can grow limitlessly as long as the root obtains the nutrition it needs. That only signals one more thing: to grow higher is to have stronger root. Be gentle yet clench the solid foundation tight. Figure it out from ground zero.
