We’ve made this email all about the trees because trees are grounding … they are solid, stationary, and huggable at all times. And … with deep roots firmly in the soil and branches reaching out and growing, trees are a life force and we have a lot to learn from them … all we have to do is pay attention!
We believe that one of the most admirable traits of a tree is its resilience … they thrive through all four seasons in their own way, withstand harsh conditions and extreme weather, and can live thousands of years. When life feels overwhelming, instead of getting lost in the forest (although if intentional, this can be wonderful too!), be like a tree … ground yourself, soak up the good around you, be patient, grow, give, make a lasting impact, and learn to stay centered so you can withstand the mixed weather of life with grace and gratitude.
We hope you find the links in our roundup as fascinating as we do, and that they inspire and motivate. Let’s do more to protect (and pay attention to) our trees. We need them, they need us…science even tells us we have a lot in common.
