This won’t come as a surprise to those who know me. Nothing makes me feel more alive than being outdoors in nature. To breath in the fresh air and focus on the now. As Anne says in this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge, “… the universe is constantly whispering words of love: expressions of pure joy, respect, loyalty, and sacrifice for someone other than ourselves, and instructions on letting go and focusing on what is most important in this world.”
To me, what’s important is family, being there for others and feeling at one with nature. When we’re comfortable within and love our world we can better enrich that of others.
Standing underneath the canopy and beneath a towering trunk can make us feel small and yet at the same time connected to everything in the universe.
Creatures of nature that stay together through thick and thin remind me of the bond and commitment of marriage and partnership.
A mother that nurtures and protects her babies reminds me of the love of family.
And the family that plays together stays together.
And when life gets hard the hope and radiance of a rainbow after a dark storm can reignite the love and put everything in perspective. Set the world right again.
Nature can teach us so much. All we have to do is open our eyes, look around and take in the beauty and lessons she has to offer.
The universe is telling me to focus on love. What is it saying to you?
