Tree of Life....

the
tree of life...
teaches
love...compassion
grief...fear
trust...resilience
learning
lessons.

Today, I am aware of the lessons one learns from the tree of life....As I climb this tree with its many branches...I am aware of living...loving...creating...being...changing...dreams...hopes...
I am learning life lessons and realizing that they take many forms...many colors...offer many challenges...learning that some lessons help me to be peaceful and quiet....some touch me to a core so deeply that they change me totally...some bring creativity in full bloom...others bring gratitude...some lessons bring tears and sorrow....but all bring about a growth. Today, I am aware of learning to climb my life tree...trusting that each branch will hold me...or cushion my fall...that I will climb with my heart...that I will be ready to accept the next step upward....that I will rest when things are painful and yet listen to the lesson...as I climb this tree today, I am learning that as the tree grows...so do I....As I open I find gratitude...as I feel joyful I allow wisdom in...and as I realize this...I also am aware that my ideas about some things have not been fully formed....Today, as I am aware of the lessons one learns from the tree of life...I am very aware of the love...compassion...grief...fear...trust...and resilience that I am learning....today, I reach the branches that show me my dreams and I am learning my lesson as I climb slowly.
Artfully Yours,
Pattie
