Lesson from My Tree – Time is Precious

Sunlight through my tree's branches. My tree is gone now. Yet, I have this photo!  Sometimes it can be too late... so don't just dream... act on your dreams!
Sunlight through my tree’s branches

“It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting…” – Paulo Coelho

I befriended this tree as my yoga homework. I called it mine, I came to it to cry, when I learned that my father passed away, I read under it, meditated…. yes, it was my tree!
It is gone now. I can’t believe it, and will never understand why.
It hurts, because I loved it so much. Would it be better not to befriend trees? Or fall in love? No!.. I’m grateful for this tree, and the time we spent together. I had a place to go to, leaving my cubicle at work. I had a place to go to for a little retreat in the middle of the day.

I didn’t know this tree will be cut. Trees can live longer than people… if you let them.

I loved this tree and it taught me this lesson in return…
I have limited time on this Earth, and I don’t know how much time I have. And I don’t know how much time I have to be with people I love…

I’m afraid it’s the same for you. You have limited time too. We all are, and sometimes it can be too late.

Live a Life… not half a life! Love! Hug! Dream! … and…

Don’t just dream! Act! How?

  • If you like someone – tell him/her!
  • If you have a story you care about – share it! (write a blog, join Toastmasters, etc)
  • If you love someone – listen to them (even if you have a cool story to tell)
  • If you want to be a farmer, start by raising butterflies on your balcony (this is very unique farming, but why not?)
  • If you want to make money from your dreams… Start by figuring out What is your passion?

Questions to Consider

  • What is your passion?
  • What is your next step? What is your next action?
  • How can you express your love to your loved ones today?

Extra note:
If you write sentences in the “if x then y else z ” format, you might be able to make money by being a computer programmer (pays really well!)
