A pine tree does not attempt to transform itself into an oak tree; instead, it evolves and expands from a tiny seed into a beautiful and robust plant. This evolution occurs gradually and steadily. Over time, the pine tree will bear no resemblance to its original seed, but it remains a pine tree at its core. Its strength derives from its ability to firmly anchor itself when a storm arrives, while its flexibility comes from its capacity to adapt to changing seasons.
Allow yourself to grow into something greater, untangle from the confines of your own thoughts. Seek to make tiny steps, ground yourself when emotional storms strike, and nurture the psychological flexibility needed for adaptation.
