                                         Advice from a Tree

                            •  stand tall and proud

                            •  sink your roots into the earth
                            
                            •  be content with your natural beauty

                            •  go out on a limb 

                            •  drink plenty of water

                            •  enjoy the view

                                                               ~ Ilan Shamir ~

Advice I would add to the list -  shake off troubles 

What advice would you add?

  2. Don't pay attention to stuff caught in your hair? Seriously, I would have to say "spread your branches and give comfort where you can"

  3. The tree has to grow where it is planted...so I guess be content in your situation!

  7. Thank you for quoting my poem. It is wonderful to see it being shared and enjoyed by many. I would add: It's ok to be a little "sappy"! We need lightness these days for sure. Regards, Ilan Shamir
