- The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them. Ernest Hemingway
Grow a Bonsai Tree
The bonsai tree is a beautiful metaphor for human growth.
The bonsai seed is no different than a full-size tree. The restrictions in the size of the pot limit the reach of the roots so the tree isn’t able to grow to its full potential. The lesson: never limit yourself!
The bonsai cultivation has been practiced for nearly 2,000 years.
This makes it one of the oldest known art forms. Respect your elders!
Patience is a virtue.
It will take a lot of trial and error, but when you nail it, it’s all worth it.
There’s no way to speed up the growth process, so in the age of fast-paced social media, you can finally train yourself to calm down.
It’s like a gym for your mind.
Unlike animals, when a bonsai tree gets wounded, it grows around the injury instead of repairing it.
This leads to some very interesting designs.
