I was thinking about why I love oak trees so much. They make me feel like anything is possible. I learn so much from being near them and absorbing their peaceful presence.
However big my problems seem or however hard my thoughts, an oak tree can give me the perspective that there is always a larger container holding everything together no matter what feels like it’s falling apart.
The wisdom in standing still for a long time is always healing. Growing in all directions slowly and steadily over the years and taking your time to embody all of your glory. It happens so imperceptibly, we barely notice, but then one day we are wowed by the growth and maturity.
I can bring my imperfections and insecurities to an oak tree and they fall away as I understand how beautiful imperfect can be.
