I was out walking the dog today in one of our most loved places in nature and came across my favourite tree that I often sit on.
I was struck today as I looked at it that nature can teach us so many things. The tree had clearly at some point suffered a major catastrophe in its life and had fallen down.
But it adapted, survived and is clearly flourishing despite what would seem to be its end by falling down.
We can always find a way to recover and flourish from anything. We can accept what is, be at peace within and look for solutions now.
The more we run away and hide from life, the harder life becomes. We run so far away from our true-self that it becomes frightening to go back to it
We have to stop running and hiding and be brave enough to take that leap into the unknown. It might not work, but it might too. That’s the beauty of life, the uncertain adventure.
If we make that leap a small step, we can face it and then take another step and keep stepping moment by moment, nothing too big.
If we focus beyond now and one step, we keep running away. It’s too much when we try to make giant leaps as our minds get wrapped up with the outcome and then sabotage any attempt to take the journey.
Take a step towards the dream and who knows? Make it small but take it.
