Nature Inspires Resilience

“Experience life in all possible ways – good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, summer-winter. Experience all the dualities. Don’t be afraid of experience, because the more experience you have, the more mature you become.” – Osho 💛🌷💛🌷💛

Spring Comes After Winter

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.  There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” -Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

I was sitting on the swing while my coffee brewed and something caught my eye. This beautiful grass was sparkling in the sunshine and I knew I had to take pictures of it. A simple moment of happiness. Full of light and wonder.
