What if the leaves were to say I refuse to change? They might not transition from shades of green to red, orange and yellow. Maybe they would fail to fall from the trees. They may not be willing to share branches with neighboring flowers and leaves.
The next time you face a setback, keep this vision in mind. Slow down if you must. Keep going and maintain a steady pace. If you are tempted to step off the track, pull yourself together, and do whatever it takes to stay in the race.
