A life lesson learned from my tree

It’s December and it’s that time of year again. The time of year when my 30m tall Spotted Gum, Corymbia maculata, sheds its bark creating its wonderful spotted appearance with soft hues of greys, pinks and creams. It sheds its bark at this time each year which is its natural cycle. But last year I had a moment where nature taught me something about reviewing and shedding the experiences of the year to acknowledge them but then to prepare for the year ahead.

This year has been a great year for me, but it’s also had its moments, as no doubt we all have, that’s life. So being the end of the year I’ve reminded myself to re-read my thoughts that I shared on GardenDrum and to reflect and prepare for the year ahead. Enjoy the read.
