Think Like a Tree

I was going through some poems for my students today and I found this poem I just love!  It is simple, but beautiful, and I think depicts much of how I have approached this journey.

Think Like a Tree
by Karen I. Shragg

Soak up the sun
Affirm life's magic
Be graceful in the wind
Stand tall after a storm
Feel refreshed after it rains
Grow strong without notice
Be prepared for each season
Provide shelter to strangers
Hang tough through a cold spell
Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring
Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky
Be still long enough to
hear your own leaves rustling.

I shared this with Melissa at The Inspired Room
