Shake the plant

Today I watered my indoor trees and remembered that "they say" indoor plants need an occasional shaking since they don't ever have to stand up to wind then they will become weak. It is the wind that makes them strong and a good shaking mimics that wind and helps strengthen them.

Life does seem to offer its share of wind in the form of adversity but the good news is that it can make me stronger as long as I don't let it break me. It also seems reasonable that if I stand with my face to the wind then I will really be strong. Even if I am not as strong as I should be, I am going to fake it so the winds won't think they have to blow so hard and maybe I can just enjoy a little breeze from now on.
