Lessons From Mother Nature: The Trees

Updated: Jul 10, 2022

Last Sunday I went to a secluded park near my house and laid on a big blanket.

It was quiet and I was surrounded by nature and it was beautiful. I almost felt like crying after a few minutes because I realized how grateful I am to live my life and have so many freedoms and flexibility with my time that allow me these opportunities.

One of the first things I did after setting up my blanket was lay down and look up at the trees surrounding me - it was such a majestic moment. After reflecting on the trees for a few moments, it occurred to me that there’s so many things we can learn from Mother Nature - specifically her amazing trees.

I quickly took out my notepad and started writing down all the similarities and lessons - I came up with 10.

1. Trees grow stronger every year with a bigger trunk & more branches 💪

2. Their branches move with the wind , they go with the flow & are flexible 🌬

3. They shed their leaves (similar to our skin) to grow again which is represented with the seasons 🍂

4. It only takes 1 single seed to produce something; similar to women giving birth 🤰

5. They don’t compete with one another & grow freely without judgement 🌳

6. They provide shelter for other animals such as critters, birds & insects 🦉

7. The are grounded into the earth & build strong roots 🧍‍♀️

8. They “brand out” & pursue multiple paths ↕️ ↔️

Examples of this could be playing multiple roles (sister, daughter, mother) & multiple streams of income

9. If you speak kindly to them, it grows healthy 🗣

The Royal Horticultural Society researchers discovered that talking to your plants really can help them grow faster. They also found that plants grow faster to the sound of a female voice than to the sound of a male voice

10. Some produce fruit & flowers which is similar to women women producing different types of children such as male, female, ethnicities, number of children 💐
