be the tree philosophy
Be still.

Breathe deeply.

Worry not.

Know your truth.

Grow deep roots.

Bend in the wind.

Weather the storms.

Observe much.

Act little.

Speak gently.

Host graciously.

Drink water.

Shed the leaves when they no longer serve you.

Rest in periods of dormancy.

Grow tall.

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
