Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

There is a lot of optimism in the word renewal. Just its part “new” is exciting – it has elements of curiosity, adventure, and risk. Renewal is a complex concept that requires desire for it and willingness to pay the price. It takes energy, overcoming a variety of obstacles, and often a lot of struggle. The ultimate goal of renewal is joy and satisfaction. Even so, the result may be a disappointment.

Here is my visualization of renewal.

Renewal of life is powerful and joyful, especially in the desert

Renewal of hope. The 6th of November was a happy night – for many of us.

Renewable energy – a great chance for our planet

To renew oneself is difficult – as diverse a challenge as diverse people are. In truth, it is a form of metamorphosis.

So renew yourself! And good luck.
