What's your Tree?

There's a saying that at the time of death we're more likely to regret the things we didn't do than the things we did. Not so for Julia Butterfly Hill. In 1997 she climbed into a 600 year old Californian redwood tree and stayed put for over a year to prevent it from being cut down.

Now she's asking what's your tree?

 

What is it in your life that calls you to be bigger than what you think is possible, for yourself and for your world? What is it that calls you to stretch beyond what is comfortable into places that are uncomfortable, and to realize that you are more powerful and more magical than your mind could have believed?

Watch the YouTube what's your tree video here

You can post an answer for her on YouTube - but if you do, would you also post it here? I'd like to know.

Here's mine - well one of them - to get the ball rolling...

I will never knowingly cause (or support) harm to another living creature. I won't step on or squish a little one and I won't eat the bigger hairy or woolly ones.

How about you?
