The quote for today is
Keep a green tree in your heart and a singing bird may come. -Chinese Proverb
What does this proverb mean to me?
This one is tough for me to express what I think it means. I’ll give it my best shot. I believe it means to be good and true and one day, happiness will come.
Many things are needed to keep a tree alive: water, nutrients, and sunlight are most important. The tree is in your heart, and I believe this represents your soul. By feeding your soul goodness-positivity, kindness, helpfulness-you will attract a singing bird, or your happiness. You will find happiness and peace if you keep your soul healthy.
What does this proverb mean to you? Maybe you can express yourself more clearly!
