Let Our Growth be like this Tree

Imagine you're walking on a a dirt road. You're just walking the scenery. The flowers, the fresh air, butterflies and just letting Mother Nature warm you up. Then, you come across this tree. A beautiful tree, with beautiful, bright green leaves and it seems to reach all the way to the sky.  You're looking up at it and it seems to just stretch on forever. 

We should be the same way. We should all have dreams and ambitions, that reaches the into the sky.

If you want to go back to school, for that degree that you might not have had the opportunity to get. Perhaps, you wanted to go to school years ago and didn't have the money. Or maybe you wanted to and you ended up getting married and having a family. Although you love your family, you still want to have your education. And in today's world, you need to have a higher education in order to get better jobs and better promotions. Well, if you want that degree, go for it! 

My Mom has been a nurse for almost 35 years. And she's 54! She has been trying to earn her RN degree for a long, long time. Every time, she's tried to study and work on it, issues and distractions came up. But, now she's going for it and she's really enjoying it! It makes me so happy to her having a great time and to see her studying. She's always seen me study and it's so great to see her to with her books and glasses and just enjoy talking with people online in her classes. 

When we were homeschooling, Granny told me that she was really happy that we decided to do homeschooling. Because she got to go back to school, along with me. Granny didn't have a more than a sixth grade education. So, it really touched my heart and soul, that she felt good being a part of the process. She felt like a student along with me. That made me feel great!

I see so many people going back to school. I am so really proud of Moms. As busy as Moms are, the fact they all still find the time, to go to school and raise their families, is amazing to me! We are so busy, but parents seem to have some of toughest trouble in the world.  Between, carpooling, cooking, cleaning and making sure that the house if running smoothly. Adding the pressures of school, to the mix and you've got a whole different level here.

I want to a blogger and writer. I want to create my own books and create a business. I never knew that these things were possible. I just didn't think that I could do this. But now, I am seeing this differently. I can be anything that I put my mind to. 

The beauty of Mother Nature and Trees, speaks volumes to me about hopes, dreams, and ambitions. All businesses start out as an idea. (Aka: A seed). Then, you've got to get started. (Aka: Plant the seed.) Then, you got continue working on  it, even though it will be hard and challenging! (Aka: No matter whether's it hot out, you've got to get out there and tend to your garden.) After some work, challenges, naysayers and difficulties, before too long, you'll have an incredible garden! (Aka: You'll reap what you've sown. You will be able to enjoy the fruits of your labor). And it is just as good your career as vegetables are for your body. 

We all are traveling on a journey and the work that we are creating are the trees that we're walking past. Just keep walking. The biggest and most beautiful tree is...whatever your next dream is!
