Grounded

March 22, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Going through a bit of a challenge in my life right now.  

Sometimes a challenge can stop you in your tracks.

I feel like this past month has been exactly that.

Stopped.  

i describe myself as deeply rooted. 

trees in particular resonate with me

i feel they have stories to tell

their roots ground me.

they are not always perfect

i know I am certainly not perfect. 

i am grounded

and boy, do i have stories to tell.

my friend and fellow photographer shared this poem today after I posted this tree image.

i just love him for sharing it. 

Endure Like A Tree. 

To get through life you have to endure as a tree does.
When Mother Nature tries to bring you down,
You will never fall; you will stand your ground.
You will encounter burning flames.
Yes, it will be painful and hard,
But once it's over and done with,
Your bark will grow back stronger than ever.
When your leaves start to slowly leave,
Never fret, there will be more to take their place.
They'll come and go throughout your life,
That's just how it is.
From the time you're a seedling to the time you're mature,
Your roots will always be there to support you.
After many years,
After enduring forest fires and changing leaves,
Your own saplings will fall away to start anew.
Then you'll know not to worry,
They'll grow into tall, strong trees,
Just like those before you.
