Hey there my little ones…How are you doing?
Today’s post is a little different. I want to tell you about something special you can learn from trees.
Some days you feel things are going really bad. You feel like it’s the “worst day ever!!”
You bumped your knee, your friends didn’t turn up at school, your favourite toy broke or a kid was very mean to you.
On those days, I want you to picture a tree. A big strong beautiful tree. The roots of the tree go deep into the soil. The trunk is strong and stands straight and tall. The branches go high and wide, with many beautiful leaves growing.
The tree is surrounded by other big and small trees of the forest. Many birds, insects and animals live around the tree and love it very much.
When a storm comes, the branches of this tree sway in the wind, but the tree does not break, it does not fall. The big tree and the trees around, support each other and hold on. Soon, the storm passes, the sun shines, the birds chirp and the day is wonderful again.
Now, when you feel the day is just not going your way, imagine that you are this tree. You are surrounded by wonderful family and friends. A bad day is like a storm. It might feel like nothing is going your way, but the storm passes. You must stand tall, stay strong. Soon everything will be better and your day will be wonderful again..so smile 🙂
Here’s a soothing meditation practice can you can try each day. Remember the tree 🙂
