Most of us keep our gnarled roots hidden.

But just because you don’t see something, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.

If you see someone who looks like they could be struggling, sometimes a simple “are you okay?” can make all the difference… Just a simple act of human contact.

Because we’ve all heard it before, you never know what is going on in someone else’s life.  Perhaps that guy who cut you off in traffic is pissed off at the world because his wife is dying from cancer.

People are all going through their own stuff and some of it has deep, old traumas that hide in their roots. And roots don’t always show above the surface, but they decide what the rest of the tree will look like.

Maybe you choose today to start doing random acts of kindness. And maybe you let someone see what you have hidden so that you can begin to heal.
