  Who are you?

            Nearly all of the trees on our farm had dropped their leaves by last month except for one maple tree.  This one maple tree held on to its leaves like a kid hanging on to his blanket when mom says it has to be washed.  And finally it started letting go of its leaves.  The woods were a dark grayish, brown color.  The rest of the trees looked like sticks.  But this last maple tree put on a show of color like few I’ve ever seen.  It’s green leaves turned yellow, then orange, then red against the dark backdrop of the woods.  It was absolutely a marvel to watch daily. Now I know a botanist would tell me that the maple tree’s combination of rainfall and nutrients and sunlight determined its leaf dropping.  But it seemed like that tree has a uniqueness about it that perseveres in the face of Mother Nature. Be like this maple tree.  Don’t blindly follow the crowd.  Be unique.  Out of 7 billion people here, there’s only one you.  Be the best you possible, with all of your brilliant, positive colors.  That’s the way to Live Positive and Work Positive in the New Year!
