The desert is a dry, hot place, where only adaptive organisms can survive. Even though deserts seem bare and minimal, there is a sense of raw beauty to them. Oftentimes, we have to be adaptive in our lives. Things change, circumstances change, people change, and in order to survive we must be adaptive. Even if these changes leave us with the bare minimal, with a new perspective, we can see the raw beauty in our circumstances. There will always be obstacles to overcome in our lives, but it is up to us whether to persevere or to be stagnant.
