“Do you know what people did in the old days when they had secrets they didn’t want to share? They’d climb a mountain, find a tree, carve a hole in it, whisper the secret into the hole and cover it up with mud. That way, nobody else would ever learn the secret”
I’m normally not a secretive person, but there was something in my heart I wanted to let go, and during my visit up north, i visited a place that I felt most comfortable in the world and whispered my secret into the tree. It felt like a confession, something I had done or felt that noone could ever find out. We all possess at least one secret within us, some of them light and not worth keeping whilst some of them are embedded in their hearts as deep as the ocean itself. Whatever they are, consider letting it go to a good old reliable tree. You’ll feel so much better, trust me.
The added bonus of this secret was that I actually wrote a secret inside the tree, hoping that someone would one day read it. They would have no idea what it meant, and have no idea who I am, what I look like, and why I wrote that secret. Having that feeling behind the back of your head was pretty neat.
Hope this post was inspiring for you and will encourage you to do something silly today. Set your mind free! (cheesy I know, but it was that or an anticlimax).
