Your Roots Will Support You!
Some transitions may seem horrifyingly scary and leave us without any idea how to deal with our new circumstances. So, what can we do to make these transitions easier? Well, think about a content unborn bird, who would likely want to stay in its safe little shell, but in reality, it must struggle to birth itself into a new way of living or it will die... having never constructed a nest and thus come to know the ensuing freedoms about to come. Not to mention, giving the world the pleasure and purpose of its presence. You may be in a place where you are struggling, perhaps depressed or even lost. Look around you. See your blessings, they are there. Those blessings are your roots. Stay tightly connected to the roots (your faith, self love and gratitude for the gift of your existence) which have nourished you and supported you in the past. A tree, by itself, cannot stand strong against the winds that blow against it, but if its roots are deep...it will weather the storm. Please, don't give up and wollow in what was. You are alive! So, walk forward in this new unfamiliar life that is "now". Have faith and hope. Look around you and really explore your life's new dimensions...and with an open heart, like that little frightened bird, take flight. Do it with the courage that comes from your roots, which have grown deep and have always nourished you. THEY are your anchor.
