This is how the Banana plants looked after the wind blew it to the ground

we had the branches cut down to the stem.

Do you see the new leaves emerging from the stems.

I walked over to the Banana plants expecting them to be dead, but was surprised to see new leaves emerging from the stems that were cut.Is that how life is, no matter what happens in your life and no matter how down you are , you can always get up and go.It may take a long time and it may be a difficult path but all is not dead.Look at the banana plant, it was swept to the ground, my gardener cut all the stems down but still the plant had the will to survive, I see new leaves and shoots .New life begins.Just looking at this plant gives me a sense of hope and renewal.We should not give up and die but rather pick up ourselves and give it our all and fight to live. Sometimes I do find myself giving up , do you feel like that and what do you do?

Yes it feel the same at time..and when it does I speak intensively to Our Creator of this universe ...asking him to give me the power and to continue ..

you can always get up and go- Damn true Starry. Glad to see those plants back in form. Nothing is impossible isn't it.
It depends on what you wanna giveup and hold back things Starry. Things which are close and cannot let go will forever stay.

We shud bounce back, coz staying or feeling lonely only makes us feel depressed.

life is an incredibly powerful thing and there's much we can learn from nature... never to give up, for instance.
