It’s been a far too long hiatus these past couple weeks since my last post. Life has been a bit crazy. Supporting friends during their senior recitals, hosting a family friend and then my cousin who are both looking at attending Miami next year (hope they do!), housemate birthdays, career service events, picking up robes and other graduation stuff, you name it! Add to that the hectic state of my brain constantly jumping between papers, group projects, and potential jobs. Hence the sad lack of anything new. Well I am here to put that stop to this stoppage tonight! It’ll be a short post as I am dead tired, but I wanted to do something to commemorate Earth Day.
Earth Day got me perusing some past photos for a Facebook post of a similar nature earlier this evening. Celebrating the Earth is something immensely important. It is a shame that most people, myself included, don’t do it on a daily basis.
I’ve come to find that even the smallest seed can foster growth of the most exquisite things.
The most normal things become far more extraordinary and special than anything our imaginations could dream up when we take the time to really look.
Take a close look while you can. For you will never see the exact same thing twice.
Do not fear this constant shift of environment, for everything has a time and place.
Instead, appreciate the beauty of life’s adaptability.
Take inspiration from the land
…and the sea.
Respect the entire world we inhabit.
Because we can’t forget that we share this world. That others need the space, too.
Above all, don’t forget to explore. Travel the world, for it’s a place filled with wonder.
And when you come back home, you’ll have a little more love in your heart and you just might see spectacles right in your backyard you never noticed previously.
Looking back at the places I have been and the incredible sights I’ve seen, I am so unbelievably lucky. I have had the opportunity to see and do so much already in my life, and I only hope that I can continue to broaden my horizons.
Well, readers, I hope you’ve enjoyed my tribute to Mother Nature as much as I have enjoyed sharing these photos from a few of the places I’ve visited. If this post boils down to anything, it’s the age old adage to stop and smell the roses. Our world has so much to offer if we only look around and join in. Happy Earth Day!
Next post? A venture into new territory for me – cake! Thanks for reading, cheers! Until then…
