Lessons From Trees and Leaves

A recent blog post from GinaV at Profession for P.E.A.C.E. called “Letting Go and Turning It Over, reminded me that leaves, like our feelings, often go through many changes. They can turn to brilliant colors as temperatures change and passions flare. And if the feelings turn sad, like leaves, they eventually fade or fall away, giving to the tree and to ourselves the chance to survive the hard times, the space for new leaves or relationships, and the nourishment, growth, and understanding from what came before.

I believe it is wise to trust the lessons that the trees and their leaves offer to us every day.
