It can be wicked easy to get attached to the idea that relationships are supposed to last forever – and that people and how we relate to one another are supposed to stay the same.

This notion gets reinforced in our minds, because our brains really like familiarity and don’t particularly love change.

When it comes to human beings and relationships - things remaining the same - is not a reasonable expectation because like trees, we’re all destined to grow.

Today on The Karen Kenney Show, we’re talking about how people are kind of like trees and the different relationships they find themselves in.

Some relationships weather the toughest storms, bending but not breaking. Others provide support, shade or nourishment for a time before falling away.

But all are built on the foundation, the roots, that started with what we learned in our earliest home life with our family.

If you were to look at the people in your own life - what kind of “trees” would you discover?

Do you have strong, stable Redwoods? Or are they a low bush that's never going to grow and it may be time to uproot and move on from them?

As with trees, sometimes relationships wither away, but it doesn't mean they didn't serve a purpose when they came into our life.

Like trees, relationships grow and change with each passing season with some remaining long term like evergreens and others moving on to grow alongside someone else.

So, take a look around and ask yourself, “Who am I standing in the forest of this life with and are there any that I may have outgrown that it is time to say goodbye to? Plus, what kind of tree am I being to others?”

She works with people individually in her 1:1 program THE QUEST, and offers a collective learning experience via Group Coaching.

Her process called: “Your Story To Your Glory” helps people to shift from an old thought system of fear to one of Love - using compassion, un-shaming, laughter and humor, her work is effective, efficient, and it’s also wicked fun!

KK’s been a student of A Course in Miracles for close to 30 years, has been vegan for over 20 years, and believes that a little kindness can go a long way and make a miraculous difference.
