Desperately trying to please and prove herself worthy, the tree did all she could to win the love and approval of the farmer. Exhausting herself trying to be all she thought he wanted, in the most unsupportive of circumstances, the tree finally reached breaking point.
In a moment of despair the tree had a revelation. She knew she must follow her own heart in order to truly live. Loving herself, and against all convention, the tree set out to recapture who she was really meant to be – a beautiful, life giving tree.
As the tree discovers, loving yourself is not selfish. Respecting your God given needs and desires is not egotistical. These things are necessary to live a fulfilling, happy life.
May this story inspire you to know, like the tree, that you are worthy of total love, harmony and abundance.
