When you’re not sure go back to your roots. As the oak tree stands weathered throughout the years its roots remain preserved. Roots that as time passes reach deeper and deeper into the soil. This foundation is what connects it to both its past and its present. It feeds it. It nurtures it. It’s the same with us. When you’re not sure? When you’re in doubt? Let go. Let your roots support you. They won’t fail you because you’re connected to the people in both your past and in your present. Some may have passed on, yes. But they’re still there providing support. Remember the oak tree? The original roots are deep in the ground. Your roots are within you providing you with support as life’s winds blow. You’re connected and you’re never alone. If you look hard enough within yourself you may just find something extraordinary . . . something extraordinary and as strong as an old oak.
