I saw this quote while traveling with my husband recently and it really stuck with me.  Such wise wisdom and yet so very simple.

Stand tall and proud.  Always believe in yourself. Never let others tear you down or change who you are and throw you off of  your natural path in life. If you believe in yourself and are open to the universe your path will open naturally and show you the way.

Sink your roots into the earth.  It’s always important to have a firm foundation to continue to grow and be strong. Remembering what’s important in life: stay close with family and friends, they are the ones that know and love you best and will always be there for you.  Learn all that you can from those important people in your life. There is much wisdom to be gained and to be passed on to future generations!

Be content with your natural beauty. You were created unique and special. Let the world see who you really are. Be authentic to yourself and your natural beauty and soul will shine through. You weren’t meant to be like anyone else.  Why would you want to be? You are one of a kind!

Go out on a limb. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone to try and do new things every day! Explore the world around you, both near and far. There is so much to see and do. Get out there and do something!

Drink plenty of water. Our bodies are composed of 60% water! To be active and to stay healthy it is important to consistently replenish the water that has been lost through out the day.  The more you exercise the more water you need to replace. Additional electrolytes may also need to be added. Stay in tune with your body and be good to it, and it will be good to you.

Remember your roots.  Where ever you go and what ever you do, never forget who you are and where you came from.

Enjoy the view! Always stand tall and be proud of who you are. Build on your strengths, learn from your mistakes and weaknesses, and don’t be ashamed to take a step back once in a while to admire all that you have accomplished in your life! Life’s an adventure! Enjoy the journey and remember to take some time to stop and enjoy the view!
