Know your truth.
Grow deep roots.
Bend in the wind.
Weather the storms.
Shed the leaves when they no longer serve you.
Rest in periods of dormancy.
Outstretch your arms in gratitude.
"Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive."
Howard Thurman ~ theologian,educator and civil rights leader
