22-31 Fruit

“The fruit of your own hard work
is the sweetest.”

— Deepika Padukone

“Living with fear
stops us taking risks,
and if you don’t go out on the branch,
you’re never going to get
the best fruit.”

— Sarah Parish

“Nothing great is created suddenly,
any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig.
If you tell me that you desire a fig,
I answer you that there must be time.
Let it first blossom,
then bear fruit,
then ripen.”

— Epictetus

This week’s MotW (technically “mandalas of the week”) reminds us that the fruits of our labor are worthy of our time and effort. The greater the effort, the greater the fruit. Some fruits take longer to manifest and thus require our patience. Nature demonstrates patience for us throughout the year.

Our challenge is to stop letting limiting beliefs, time, or fears keep us from going after the fruit (dreams, goals, etc). Dare to go out on a limb.
