I have always loved Nature. I love how trees and flowers lose their leaves every Autumn and become skeletons, shadows of their former selves. Then Spring arrives and like a Pheonix from the ashes, they flourish and grow again.
I love the contrast between night and day. How the day can be so bright and full of life and then the night appears so dark and still. But this is not all I see. Night is a cover for so many beautiful things. The night brings the stars and the moon, by far the most interesting things for me. Out here, the stars are so clear and bright. The moon is bigger and brighter than I have ever seen. It also brings peace. It marks the end of a day, whether it be good or bad. However, the best thing night brings, is the delivery of a new day, a fresh start.
I believe we can learn things from Nature. No matter what gets thrown its way, Nature is always awakens every morning and continues making the most of every day. Mankind needs to learn this lesson. Be resilient. Persevere. Be grateful for what you have and make the most of it. Time is fleeting. Next time you're lost, overwhelmed or just simply done; walk outside, take your shoes off, sit on the ground and listen. Let Nature guide you. Let it balance you. That is the true gift of Nature and it's waiting for you.
