Have you ever noticed the harshness of a tree bark that has weathered the storms and the changing of seasons? This bark can teach us multitude of lessons; the ability to be strong in spite of innumerable challenges. Then we can look at the other parts of the tree.The roots are fully immersed in the soil…not moving…standing firm through the test of time. Sure there are many trees who have been uprooted due to multiple reasons but what I am discussing here are the trees that you see firmly planted… day after day..year after year..The bark stands out for me…rough and beautiful. Try passing your palms on the bark of the tree and you will recognize the toughness, strength and resilience of its being.
Each of us has that ability to be resilient…not crumbling no matter what. We have to embrace the harsh lessons of this world and see it as an opportunity to grow. Sometimes you may feel what is the point of all of this? I say to you carry on and STAND TALL!!!!
When facing tribulation
When dealing with opposition
In responding to negativity
Smile through hostility
Be like the tree bark resistant,
Continue being persistent,
Rely on our creator who has our back,
He always illuminates the dark,
See each person as possessing the spark within,
Forgive them for their shortcomings,
I encourage you according to Rhonda Byrne in The Secret… “Look for the gifts in everything, especially when you are facing what appears to be a negative situation. Everything that we attract causes us to grow, which means that ultimately everything is for our own good.”
Keep well and STAND TALL!!!!!!
All we need is love
