Imagine This ~**~~~**~***~~
humans like plants. Starting from seed. Developing and Blossoming. Rooting down into the soil, and deeper into the earth. Strong. Riding out the seasons and the storms. Recovering. Resilient.
Some humans remain in the same town, perhaps the same house, their entire lives.
Some humans uproot and transplant themselves into other gardens around the planet, for a diversified experience.
What do the nutrients of this community feel like? Do the nutrients support my survival? Am I thriving? Or just staying alive?
I also think of this in terms of humans and houses.
When we live in a neighborhood, we invest our energy into our home, community, place of work, and place of worship.
When we foster warmth and connection, we’re Rooting Down. Roots going deeper into the fabric of community. More Grounded. More stable. More supported.
When we move, we UpRoot ourselves from our community and become a transplant in another community, until, our roots take hold. Again, we Root Down. It takes time and energy to stabilize in the new community, but it happens.
I liken Buying a House to Rooting Down.
I liken Selling a House to UpRooting.
I liken Investing to being a Farmer who sprinkles seeds with the hopes of producing fruitful crops.
Real Estate and Plants. Investors and Farmers. Same Same, but different. It go like that too…. <3 <3 <3
