In my angst to get into my bikini, and jump into the ocean, I ran past this tree. The tree looked so peaceful and beautiful, standing proudly by the river. I envied the tree and its ability to remain still for so long, in such a serene area.
I imagined the tree asking me, “Why am you in such a rush, on such a beautiful day?” So I stopped running, the ocean wasn’t going anywhere!
I stood by the tree and I thanked it, for being so wise, and for making me stop and appreciate it, for taking the time to stand still.
