what keeps you up late at night
SUICIDE — 2nd leading cause of death (10 to 24 yrs. old)
SEX-TRAFFIING — > 45.8 M enslaved, and over 1/2 the victims are women and girls
Likely you’ve known relationships or experiences that created patterns in your soul, deep wells in some places — protective moats in others.
Are you feeling like things can’t keep going on as they are? Overwhelmed? Maybe you can’t pinpoint it. Something isn’t right.
If you are imperfect like us, then you’ll feel ACCEPTED here.
“There’s nothing wrong with comparing ourselves to others — it’s human nature, and yet when we dismiss and disparage the accomplishments of others; or worse, wish misfortune upon others to get ahead , we stifle our own growth.” — Dr. Dagny Zhul, Ophthalmologist
We are ALL imperfect! We’re a “work-in-process”.
So let’s do this thing called life. Agree to live in the present!
Be grateful and content!
what kind of root system do you have
REDWOOD GROVE: who anchors you when facing life’s headwinds
You’d think that it’s essential for a 500 ton 350 foot tall redwood tree to have an incredibly deep root system in order to stand. In California’s Sequoia Redwood Forest a unique root system is the hidden secret to why they actually thrive.
Redwood’s root systems are shallow. They reach a depth of only five to six feet while they have no anchoring tap root.
Redwood’s root systems extend up to 100 feet horizontally from the trunk! Thus Redwoods thrive in groves because their roots interlock. Tremendous strength is achieved to confront the forces of nature like high winds and raging floods.
