Falling Leaf
Who should be blamed when a leaf falls from a tree?
Is it the wind that blew it away?
Is it the tree that let it go?
Is it the leaf that grew tired holding on?
In life we come across such situations where the crux of the problem seems uncertain. Sometimes, there’s no one to be blamed, and the situation becomes such that we look for excuses to blame someone for it.
No matter what you do, the leaf will not attach itself back to the tree.
However, the tree can always grow a new leaf, just like you can always turn over a new leaf.

And who knows, maybe that falling leaf was meant to fall as it might have served its purpose.

One of the great lessons the fall of the leaf teaches, is to do your work well and then be ready to depart when the time comes.
