So this is what the trees taught me, that if they can bounce back, if they can stand tall after being battered so severely, if they could be stripped of everything but Life and still be beautiful, that even after this tragedy they could flourish then I could to. The trees taught me that I need to stand tall and thrive! The trees reminded me that as long as I have root in ground that I will be okay, that I will make it and so will you!
“So for the people in your life who have not known your worth, who have been reckless with your heart or fallen painfully short of your expectation, sincerely wish them well, forgive yourself for holding on to it and preventing yourself from really living, forgive them for their shortcomings (as well as your own) scoop up that huge beautiful life lesson and all the pieces of your heart, and sail on. You have mountains to move, dreams to dream, and a world to change, even if the only world is your own.” - Alexis Jones, I Am That Girl
