Finding the Beauty in Nature

“The good man is the friend of all living things.”- Mahatma Gandhi

Spring Tree

The other day I was on a nature walk and came across this beautiful tree.  I had to stop and take a picture, as I knew it was something I would want to look at again.  In Florida, I would see trees and flowers all of the time but not like how it is in the Springtime in Pennsylvania.  It takes on a whole new beauty to see the sharp blooming colors.  As a child, my mom used to ask me daily, “What is it you noticed in creation that you could appreciate?”  I would respond by saying the ocean, or a butterfly, or a cool cloud formation that I happen to come across.  Recently, I seem to notice the blooming colors.

It is so important to notice the beauty in nature.  Not for me, not for you (in that moment), but if you can see the beauty in nature on a regular basis, what else are you noticing the beauty in?  So I ask you… What did you notice today in nature that caught your attention that you appreciated?

Daily Motivation: Dreams & Actions and how it applies to US

“To accomplish great things, we must dream as well as act.”- Anatole France

I am going to do my best to post daily quotes of inspiration and motivation.  I think it helps people to think about what they need to set forth for the day, week, or any time of the near future and reflect on themselves.

When I was looking for books of motivation, it is amazing on how many religious books and theological books were around and less neutral about overall well-being.  I think this quote was perfect for me this week as I have been preparing to open my new office.  I have purchased furniture, have been working on making the office cozy and comfortable, and getting all of the details in order for a running business.  Now, it’s time to connect with others to network and spread the word for the services I provide.

In order to have great things, you need to plan, you need to reach for your goals, don’t sell yourself short and finish what you set out to do.  What do you dream about?  What are you preparing for yourself?  How can you dream bigger but have realistic goals for yourself?
