“In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary.” – Aaron Rose
Nowhere will you find a more distinctly and immediately recognisable reddish glow in Australia than in the heart of the Red Centre.
The red rocks of Glen Helen gorge looked as though they’d been hand painted by Mother Nature herself.
But it was Uluru that stole the show.
The light that shone on the iconic Rock was awe inspiring. I was thrilled last week to have a photo featured by All Round Australia on Instagram.
I remember the sky that night, it was mesmerising, in every direction.
When I turned away from the rock this is what I saw behind me.
The sky behind me was just as spectacular, the moody hues in the clouds intensifying every second. It was proof that beauty is all around us, not just in front of us.
So often we miss it because we’re focused on a different direction.
Look around. Life is everywhere. Beauty is everywhere. If we turn our back for too long we miss out on scenes like this.
I know, I know, I’ve posted photos of Lake Hart before, but I couldn’t resist. The glow that shimmered like glass on the salt lake during sunset hour felt out of this world.
Memories like these are priceless.
Life’s all about the moments, simple ones. Is there anything more perfect than a glass of wine, the glow of a campfire and watching the sun go down in the great outdoors?
Pure peace and stillness.
When the glow of the sun finally kisses the horizon goodbye there’s a candle that shines on.
Perhaps the best glow of all is the one that shines from each and every one of us when we’re doing what we truly love, with the ones we love.
Travel always gives me that glow.
The only thing that would have made this picture perfect was if my daughter had been with us too.
So live for the moment.
Don’t put off doing what makes you smile.
Enjoy the simple things for in reality they’re the big things that matter.
This was sent to me today and I loved it so I’m sharing it here…
“It’s all about you, what you like and dislike. What you want and don’t want. What makes you smile and laugh. What makes you learn and grow. What makes you glow.
Selfish? How else can we shine our light? How else can we hope to lift the world? How else can we be all that we dreamed we might be?”
May we all find our inner glow.
Shine on everyone and have a wonderful week ahead.
Wishing you light and love.
