Have you ever wondered if the trees are talking to us? What if they can voice out their feelings? Do you think they can give us advise to help us out everyday?

These questions just popped in my mind when I saw a tree so tall and strong. Just enough to cover me from the heat of the sun this morning. And from there I realized that trees are giving us the best message and advise that we can bring until our hair turns grey.

Inspired by Advice from a Tree By Ilan Shamir.

  1. Stand tall and proud

Remember that you are unique and magnificent. You don’t need to be ashamed of how someone else sees you. You don’t need to seek approval from others. And if you care too much of what they think or say, you will always be their prisoner.

2. Go out on a limb

Have you been called out to go out on a limb? You bet that it’s not easy. Limb-climbing has never been easy. But to reach success is to step out of your comfort zone and put yourself out on a limb. As they say, it’s where all the fruit is.

3. Remember your roots

“Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him”.

Colossians 2:7

Whatever success or hardship in life you have right now. Never forget Him and you will always know where you’re going.


4. Drink plenty of water

Water as we all know is the fountain of youth. It gives us better skin, more energy, less cravings, better digestion, better mood, less headache, a higher metabolism, and ability to concentrate more. So never underestimate what a water can bring. Keep calm and stay hydrated!

5. Be content with your natural beauty

They keep saying that being beautiful is what everyone needs to be. Forget that!

Honestly? Don’t be beautiful. Instead, be interesting, be witty, be intelligent, be angry, be funny, be adventurous, be klutzy, be talented, be crazy, be anything that you want to be. There are millions of other things to be. Be your own definition of amazing. That is more important than a set of  letters strung together to make a word. Go on and sport your natural beauty!


6. Enjoy the view

Life is journey and not race. Go fast enough to be there but slow enough to take see, relax, breathe, feel the moment and enjoy the view.


And there you go!

Hope this gives everyone a courage to stay strong and continue loving your life. Just play. Enjoy the game and have fun.
