Quite a while ago, I almost killed this lovely plant (I still don't know its name). It had very sad, dead leaves. I tried to cut out bits to remove those and make it better but it still looked very unwell and didn't get better. On the other hand, I could see a few new sprouts coming from the root. Eventually I decided to cut the whole grown leaves. I had to be quite brave as I didn't know how it would affect the plant. Those grown leaves were still alive but I let them go. There was nothing left except young and weak new sprouts.

Now it is very healthy good looking plant (yay!). These (photo) are all grown from tiny young sprouts which gradually spreaded out again. They absorbed the energy and started to grow and grow.

Sometimes pain is neccessary for growth. Well, there might be no growth without pain as we all already know. I do often forget this truth. As long as there is hope and dream for tomorrow, it is probably worth enduring the pain today to see better tomorrow.
