Nature teaches us how to be. Instead of picking up the pieces of the past season, nature absorbs her brokenness and battered remains. This becomes part of her landscape and strengthens her foundation. She molds into something new, a more interesting and rugged version of her past self. Her warrior spirit prevails and with deepened roots, she is ready for forward footsteps. We, too, must soak up our stories. This helps to heal and ground. Lay down your stories and bloom.
