Stand Tall

‘Stand Tall’

On my recent road trip up north, I passed through the magnificent Waipoua Forest.

Kauri trees are the great trees of Aotearoa/New Zealand, and the forest contains the largest specimens of them.

To look up the straight trunks into the leafy canopy is to be simply awe struck.

Truly inspirational!

I often find myself “crouching down”, in a metaphysical sense at least, rather than “standing tall”. Lacking self-confidence; doubting myself; the sort of shit that plagues many of us, I suspect.

If I have any resolution for the New Year it is to be like the kauri trees pictured – tall in spirit, standing proud.
