(continued... "Why a Pine Tree is a Perfect Metaphor for Life")

2. This pine tree is not trying to be anything other than what it is.

How many times have you wanted to be different from how you are? Maybe it is physical: do you want to be taller, thinner, younger, stronger? Maybe it is intellectual: do you feel like your sister or brother got all of the brains and you ended up with the good sense of humor?

I imagine that a pine tree doesn't grapple with this same sense of inadequacy. A pine tree just is. A pine tree is not trying to be an oak tree, and why should it? An oak tree is beautiful and magnificent, but in its own unique way, just as a pine tree has its own unique beauty.

Whenever you try to be other than what you are; whenever you diminish yourself by a sense of inadequacy, you distance yourself from your potential. You distance yourself from the inherent power within YOU. Don't worry, though, this distance is only temporary, because as soon as you remember your inherent beauty, you can shine as the greatness that you truly are, in your unique and absolutely perfect manifestation.

Are you ready to be the very best you that you can be? Are you ready to find freedom from who you think you should be? Check out my new audio course - I am running a special offer this week only, until July 15th. Check it out at: http://breakfreebeauty.com/awakening_the_feminine.php
