Life is not as simple as how it seems. Some say living life is like a roller coaster ride full of ups and downs, twist and turns. Some say it’s like a long and winding road with so much obstacles and narrow streets, for the day-to-day challenges in living life is but an inevitable. Some hitches will drive you crazy, some will make you question your strength and worth, but most of all, life obstacles will surely make you a bolder, stronger and better version of yourself.

If you’re experiencing your downtime today, but are tired of seeking advice from the elders, and your friends already ran out of gears to cheer you up, come closer to nature and it will surely have a great idea on how to make you feel better. Just relax, breath in, breath out, have your eyes wide-opened, listen attentively, and nature will offer the life lessons you have never imagined enclosed to it.

Bamboo for example, is one of the most adorable and useful trees you could ever see. You might be wondering how adorable is a tree without flowers or without bearing fruits? It doesn’t even have a large trunk. Brace yourself, look deeper and learn from the bamboo plant.

Be strong for all seasons of life

Even the body of the largest bamboo has no capacity to cover the same radius as the other trees in the forest. But this type of plant can actually withstand any kind of season, be it an extremely cold winter or hot summer, not to mention that most of the time, it is the only plant left standing after a raging storm. Just like the bamboo plant, experiencing different storms in life is inevitable. Thus, you have to keep calm, stay strong and focused. You may sway smoothly with the wind blowing on your life, but know that nothing can drag you down but death. Surely that after the pouring rain, the sun will come out with the rainbow smiling back at you, saying that you can do it because you’re a tough one. The foundation of the bamboo plant is solid, though it sways with the wind as well. But just like the plant, you may bend at times and sway like a dancing grass, but never ever give up. Keep pushing!

Grow continuously

One of the fastest-growing plants in the world is the bamboo plant. Nonetheless, each one surely came from being small, prior to growing really tall. Hence no matter how small you are, no matter who you are or where you are right now, believe in your abilities that you can bring yourself up in the sky flying as high as the eyes can reach. You have a lot of potential to grow just like the bamboo plant.

Aim high but stay humble

The bamboo is known as the tallest grass plant as of today. Based on records, the reported tallest grass plant was found in India, reaching 151 feet. But have you noticed that the taller a bamboo plant is, the more that it bends down, as if looking back to its roots? As a human being, we always aim for the better; we always look forward to improving ourselves, especially our status in life. There’s nothing wrong with that, nonetheless soaring high should constantly be incorporated with humility. Stay as modest as you can be, to recognize the people behind every success you attain in life. Do not ever forget that the tallest bamboo plant bends down so it won’t break itself, whereas you should fly high to achieve every goal in life, but have to keep your feet on the ground to ensure that you’re not landing unexpectedly.

Live with a purpose

The bamboo plant is very useful; it can be a medicinal remedy, a home decoration or furniture, a building material, or a musical instrument. Afar from that, the bamboo plant can also be as useful as a cooking material and asorganic bamboo clothing. We can also live as purposeful as the bamboo tree. While aiming to attain your goals in life, it is your responsibility as well to identify your duties and responsibilities in every community you are affiliated to. Know your purpose and always give your best foot forward.

As inspirational as a bamboo plant can be, so as you. Be an inspiration to others and live your life as it’s the only one you could ever have! But don’t forget that as part of facing the hurdles in life, you have to stay stylish and free. Apart from being emotionally prepared, your physical appearance matters just the same.


Nowadays, style has become more important than comfort when it comes to dressing up. But what if you can combine both being stylish and comfortable in one? Why not live organically and dress yourself with the very inspiringbamboo clothing?
