A colleague brought me a laminated bookmark from his trip to the Yellowstone National Park. I love this Advice from a Tree bookmark.
Advice from a Tree
- Stand tall and proud
- Sink your roots into the Earth
- Be content with your natural beauty
- Go out on a limb
- Drink plenty of water
- Remember your roots
- Enjoy the view!
The advice from a tree is simple, yet full of wisdom.
Remember to stand tall and proud, to believe in yourself when others belittle you and try to put you down.
Remember to sink your roots into the earth in order to have a firm foundation and grow strong.
Remember to be content with your natural beauty. God created you to be unique and special, not like everyone else.
Remember to go out on a limb. Get out of your comfort zone and do something you’ve never done before. Take a chance, try something different, exciting, and daring.
Remember to drink plenty of water to stay healthy. Start your day with a drink of water and end your day with a drink of water, and drink more between.
Remember your roots. Don’t forget who you are and where you are from.
Remember to enjoy the view. Build on your strengths and enjoy the results!
If we take the advice from a tree to our heart, we can live a well-balanced life physically, emotionally and spiritually.
