Some days I wish I was as resilient as this tree right here. This tree is growing out of the side of a building. This tree is badass.
I wish I didn’t let setbacks affect me as they sometimes do, I wish I could react better in stressful situations, and I wish I could be as cool as a cucumber.
But I’m not.
I still resort back to fear occasionally, I still question and doubt myself (daily), and I sometimes forget how capable I really am.
Because I am.
I am capable, and competent, and gifted, and good, and creative. I am all those things and more. Some days I simply need to remind myself.
So on those days when I feel like I’m not strong enough and that I might not make it through, I go visit this tree down the street. It reminds me that I am always stronger than I give myself credit for.
Because I can be this tree if I want to be. Heck, I AM this tree!
