From My Life Sherpa : Pruning

Show me the power child, I’d like to say.

That I’m down on my knees today.

Yeah it gives me the butterflies, it gives me away,

Til I’m up on my feet again.

– Chris Cornell

Our greatest battle each day is between the new man and the old man.  It’s in the mirror.  Like a growing fruit tree, we must be pruned and watered at the same time.  We must grow and die…every day. It’s a delicate balance.

Be easy with yourself.  Pruning is a daily and life long endeavor. 

But remember, God doesn’t love us when we change. He loves us so we can change.  You have nothing to lose. Just jump!

Live Simple. Live with Klarity.
