Do you know what I love about trees? They are so beautiful to look at especially in the fall when the colors change from lush greens to brilliant hues of reds, oranges and yellows. I like that trees offer shade when needed on those hot summer days, and they can offer guidance if necessary to help you make your way through a forest (like, let’s say if you are lost). Speaking of a forest, that happens to be my favorite place to sit and meditate. I like the feelings I get when sitting under a tree, and the smell of the wood and moss, or when I hear the birds chirp in the branches above. Trees offer us protection from the elements and provide us wood to build homes. They have medicinal healing properties and provide food to the many animals and insects.
Trees can live for hundreds of years. The current individual tree record-holders are the Great Basin Bristlecone Pine trees from California and Nevada in the United States. A colony of 47,000 quaking aspen trees is considered one of the oldest and largest organisms in the world. The colony has been estimated to be 80,000 years old. Kind of cool, huh?
Now listen to this, and please smile when you read, that while we both may like trees, YOU are not one. You are a human being. Code word: B-E-I-N-G! We were not made to necessarily grow and stay in one spot FOREVER MORE! We were created to expand, to move, to grow, and experience all that we came here to experience. Not necessarily stay in one spot for hundreds of years! Especially and I do mean this, especially if you’re unhappy.
Now here’s the whole point of today’s post …… If you don’t like where you are, then move. You are not a tree, you’re not stuck in one place!
We can all have a bad day from time to time, so I am not speaking of that, but what I am speaking of is if you are unhappy the majority of the time.
If you are gripping and complaining constantly about this situation or that situation, or about your current employment, or your current partner/spouse, or the town of which you live, or of your body size, or worse yet, all of these things!
You have the ability to make some changes, move and create something new. If you are unhappy, do anything you can to find happiness. Let’s consider me the voice of reason, or at the very least the urging of your soul …. move out of that lousy relationship, change your employment or career, go to school or back to school, find some interests in life and begin a hobby or move from your city or state in which you live. You were never meant to stay in any of those things for life. Especially if you are unhappy. Stop being rigid or afraid and move yourself into another direction.
Hey even an unhappy or sick tree can get transplanted to another location if necessary. So stop sticking your roots into unhappiness and fear, you have the ability to move.
