Establishing Roots

22 Aug 2019


It’s in the roots where the foundations are established for life to be sustained.


The roots offer nourishment, sustenance and a sense of stability. 


The stronger the roots, the more likely the plant is able to weather the storms.


Without roots, the trees whither, the leaves fall, only to be gone with the winds, aimless, lost. 


The roots provide a sense of place, belonging.


They provide support and a foundation 


Order and predictability


It still allows for movement with the wind, but will not be defined by it.


It’s the roots that determine strength and allow for growth to occur


So too then, do you need to establish your roots


Your sense of place and belonging


To have your feet planted firmly on the ground, so you too can absorb all the nourishment the world has to offer.


To establish the foundations that will see you through the storms, strengthening your own resolve


Without roots, you too will whither away and die


You too will just go where the winds take you


You too will be aimless, lost forever


Roots are not the thing that limit or hinder you, they are what allow you to flourish. 


To grow up and grow out into the world


The life blood of your journey 


The thing that keeps you grounded, safe and alive


The stronger your roots, the stronger you will be to sustain anything life throws at you


And although we romanticise the idea of the wandering gypsy, as a some kind of precursor to being free – the truth is, the world can be lonely place


And as much as you try to detach yourself from your roots, in reality, your roots will forever be rooted in you.


So you can’t deny what or who you are.


What’s embedded deep in your heart.


So you best make peace with it and let your roots be the foundation on which you build everything else.
