To survive the arid conditions some plants adapt their lifestyles, physical and behavioural mechanisms to enable them to survive periods of drought. Some have adapted and grown extremely long roots which provides a better chance of acquiring moisture. Some shed their leaves which allows them to store more water, some remain dormant. We all go through periods of drought in life, times of stress and adversity, periods in which we are unable to control the events that are happening around us. Sometimes it seems that the world is against us and we are not able, or fighting to hold onto the things we need to survive. There is something to learn from remaining grounded during periods such as this, letting go of what does not serve us and keeping our emotions in check until better days come along.
