… of the Fray

The Fray

To fray is to unravel or become worn at the edge, typically through constant rubbing. It is to wear thin and show the effects of stregn. Nerves fray, relationships fray, nature frays, our patience frays, our favorite childhood blanket frays, the thread that connects us frays. What is wearing you thin? and more importantly, what is building you back up? Fraying doesn’t have to be a bad thing, sometimes it is the process that helps us to move forward. Like a young male deer with fresh antlers, who rubs against a tree with his head in order to remove the velvet so that growth can occur, we often grow when we allow ourselves to live into the fray.
