Its our roots that hold us together. Keep us steady when we struggle with change. And lets be honest change is constant. No one day is the same.
This thought came to me while looking at a set of roots that were holding the earth in place. It was a natural berm. It struck me that without that trees presence the dirt and rock would wash away in a storm. That moment reminded me that it is our roots, our experiences, that keep us grounded and help us stay together as we face each and every day. While these experiences and their lessons occasionally get challenged, we evolve rooting ourselves to the truth that we know.
Just like a trees roots are resilient our roots are resilient too. When our lives are challenged by change, no matter how small, we find a way to settle back down and hopefully incorporate what we have learned. Laying new roots in familiar places that are different but the same. Our perspectives change and we become wiser and more complex with time.
I'm glad I stumbled upon this life lesson. It was a good day to realize it. The symbolism reminding that no matter how life shifts around us if we remain rooted and resilient we can learn from every storm and every sunny day.
