Life lessons from a tree
Happy February! A short month that packs a full impactful punch – Black History Month, the month of Valentine’s love, and National Grapefruit Month (betcha didn’t know that one).
As we start a new month, we could all learn a few things from a tree, so I wanted to share these life lessons:
1. Maintain strong roots to grow healthy and strong. That means staying grounded and rooted to the earth.
2. You’re stronger than you think. Wind and rain and storms happen, and yet you still stand.
3. Be patient. Everything happens over time and in its own time. If we just wait, our flowers bloom. ??
4. Speaking of blooming, we can always bloom where we’re planted. If you can’t change your situation right now, you can still bloom and blossom where you are.
5. We can grow even healthier if we cut the dead ends off. Keep things growing healthily and strong by cutting out the negativity and keeping our surroundings as positive as possible.
I took a lunchtime break today on my mat to ground and center myself. These days have been very loud, very polarized. I am an empath, so I take energy from all sides, truthfully. Trying to find my calm and stillness within. Trying to also be more of an active listener and learner on topics I don’t have all the answers to.
