Every tree in the forest is on its own journey. The keepers of stories. Some are young, some are very old. And others like to curl their branches around one another to embrace for years to come.

One tree alone wouldn't be a forest, but collectively many trees standing together create serenity and shelter. Each with their own root system, grounding them deeply into the Earth and each with their own branches reaching ever higher to the sky.

Like the trees of the forest, we are all a part of the beauty of our collective spirit. It's easy to get lost in our own story. But the trees show us that we can take tranquility in knowing we are all here together, at different phases of our journey. One tree isn't more important than another. We are all unique. The key is remembering that we were never separated from the forest to begin with.
