"growing, while everything is dying"

The ground beneath your feet won't always be fertile. Every year it will freeze and become concealed by winter's white cloak. The earth is bound by seasons; seasons of growth and seasons of decay. But as humans, we are not. No matter the circumstances our world forces upon us, we have the choice to maintain a perpetual internal spring. A continuous and uninterrupted season of growth and progress. Don't be affected by the seasons of life. You control the climate of your soul.
