When it comes to the art of letting go, Alicia’s following Mother Nature’s lead.
– KEYS SOULCARE
“The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let things go 🍂” — Alicia Keys
From food to shelter to fresh air, trees are one of the purveyors of life’s essentials, including the very necessary lesson of letting go.
Throughout the seasons, trees move in harmony with — rather than resisting — inevitable changes. They direct all their energy to their roots in order to survive the winter, trusting they will bloom again soon.
Their transformation into winter is a vivid display of rich colors and depths, making their willingness to let their leaves fall not only essential, but beautiful.
Alicia’s Instagram post calls us to recognize that when it comes to our own transformations, we can learn a lot from trees. Rather than seeing letting go as the loss of something, we can see it as preparation for the next big bloom. Instead of fearing we will lose all our efforts from the seasons before, we can see our shifts as a time to rest after all our hard work.
Trees teach us that letting go can mean saving ourselves, revealing beauty and growth we would have otherwise missed out on, and taking the time to rest and restore as part of our growth process. So, take note and take your time — there’s power and beauty in going with the flow.
