The Roots Create The Fruits

Today I hosted the first day of a 2 day weekend workshop.

 

I'm still processing what transpired as I type this. The healing that took place inside the sacred container was mind blowing. During the workshop, the weather in my neck of the woods began to storm. 

 

Rain began coming down, the whistle of the winds began to sound like sirens, and the tall trees that were right outside my window began to sway back and forth. 

 

I watched as the last Autumn leaves on the branches began to fall and be whisked away by the powerful force of the wind. 

 

I watched as the branches of my favorite Japanese Maple got pulled in all different directions. The whistle of the winds began to make me to a place of worry. 

 

"I hope it it's okay" I thought to myself.

 

After the workshop ended, I went outside to ground and made my way to the tree. Although most of the leaves had fallen, the tree itself was still intact. 

When I stood close to the tree, I began to think of the chorus in the song, The Bones by Maren Morris. 

The Chorus Goes:

When the bones are good, the rest don't matter
Yeah, the paint could peel, the glass could shatter
Let it break 'cause you and I remain the same
When there ain't a crack in the foundation
Baby, I know any storm we're facing
Will blow right over while we stay put
The house don't fall when my bones are good
When the bones are good

 

Here's the thing:

Storms are inevitable regardless of your location. 

There are going to be storms that pass with a light drizzle.

There are going to be hurricanes that leave you feeling helpless and turning to God.

There will be random, throw a wrench and see where it lands kind of storm that comes out of nowhere and fucks shit up.

 

 

We cannot control the weather, nor can we control the effect and impact it has on our life. We can prepare, sure! But ultimately, there is only one thing that we have control over when it comes to the changing of seasons.

 

The ONLY thing we have full 100% control over - is ourselves.

 

We can build a strong mother fucking foundation. 

We can believe that no matter what happens,

No matter what comes or goes,

No matter the season or category hurricane that might show up..

We know we are going to be okay.

 

 Get to know yourself.

Get to know your strength, your resilience, and your power.

 

Begin to build a rock solid foundation.

Be so grounded in your own power that nobody can fuck with your vibe.

 

The house don't fall when the bones are good.
