What influences your life and growth?  These trees, having grown with a constant ocean breeze, look as if the breeze is blowing even when it’s not.  So too, our lives take on the shape of the influences we surround ourselves with.  The things we look at, listen to, think on, associate with…  They all influence our internal character which plays out in our external lives.  Unlike the trees, however, you have some choice in what you allow these influences to be.  Choose wisely.
