I used to feel like a leaf that had come off the branch of a tree, blowing in the wind.
The wind was the world going on around me and my actions, attitudes and happiness were always dependent on the weather and the direction of the breeze.
Now I’m the roots of the tree planted firmly in the ground, the trunk, the branches and the leaves.
I’m the whole tree, glistening in the sun, standing strong through rain, wind and storm.
I am connected to everything.
