A tree’s beauty lies in its branches, but its strength lies in its roots

Personal Experiences

I decided to repot one of my plants because it had outgrown its original pot.

I couldn’t just remove the plant without taking care that the roots remained intact. With damaged roots the plant would not survive the repotting. ⁠

We have heard it said that a tree’s beauty lies in its branches, but its strength lies in its roots. What does this mean for me? ⁠

Our stories and pasts are our roots. If taken away, we would not flourish into healthy plants/people. ⁠

Difficult stories and experiences are beneath the surface for many of us and are critical for our survival – let us never forget them. I am not my past but without it I would not be standing.

I have learnt this - and it has become my source of strength. Learning to draw inspiration from very simple things is so liberating.
