Quote: Inner Growth


A tree ‘symbolizes strength as we grow through our lives’ (Jackson, 2018). Dr. Templeton (2020) identifies three compelling lessons when we strive to be grounded like the roots of a tree:

a) our thoughts and emotions allow us to listen to our own inner patterns with curiosity, thus helping us gain inner knowledge of who we are;

b) by being connected to ourselves, we can easily connect with others and everything around us;

c) any adversity or challenges in life will be embraced with flexibility and gives us an opportunity to grow.

Just like a tree, we have the ability to grow and be in control of nurturing our own journey to happiness.
