So, I’ve sorta decided that if I ever get another tattoo that I want a tree. I was thinking about how they represent wisdom, strength, and being grounded. But, they also make me think about something that was said in the Disney movie, Mulan, that the tree that bends in the wind doesn’t break.
You don’t think of trees as being flexible, but it makes sense. A storm will destroy the things that are most rigid, but things will be lost if their aren’t grounded either. I came across this great quote the other day, but I can’t remember where I read it. If I could find it again, I would give credit to the person who said it. It said ” The children that the world sets out to destroy will most likely be the ones who save the world.” It makes me think of the kids that I work with, and if I can help them “sway with the wind” that maybe in the end they will be stronger, and able right some of the wrongs in the world.
