Golden Forest

The magical glow of sunlight one foggy, Autumn morning while exploring the forests.

Sometimes it really pays off to drag yourself out of bed and into the cold, even when all you want is to sleep in.

We might witness something truly magical, get some refreshing perspective, and maybe even meet a few photographers!

Let’s make the effort to get up and out more often, especially during the ‘bad’ weather!

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Fairy Trail

The unexplored paths are often the most beautiful and hold the most value.

Stretching into new areas of life is what our time here is all about!

Let’s not let fear keep us to the path we’re used to following, but stray off in new directions every once in a while.

We never know what we’ll find!

Along This Dark Path | We Choose Our Direction

Circumstance isn’t everything.

We all have dreams of what we want our lives to be like, and we all have a certain path we’ve been walking.

We can’t always choose where we start our journey from, but we decide which direction to walk.  If our current lives aren’t reflecting what we value and what we dream of, let’s ask ourselves:

In which direction have we been walking?

Have we been pushing closer to our ideals, or wandering in the opposite direction?

Our ideal lives aren’t going to magically fall into place, we’ll have to put in the legwork and start making choices.  Some choices may hard, and the journey with be difficult, but isn’t living closer to our dreams worth it?

Let’s continually check in with ourselves, our dreams, and ask if we’ve been heading in the direction we want.

Follow Your Happiness

It’s so important to make time to follow our happiness, passions, and values.

When we don’t, we’ll sooner or later find that we’ve fallen off our path and become lost.  We’re irritated, depressed, and feel trapped in a life we didn’t mean to create and don’t want to continue.

Happiness is a journey, and it’s all too easy and inevitable to lose our trail, but when we’re not sure where we are or where we’re headed, let’s remember what is truly important to us, and plow ahead in that direction.

The cycle of work, eat, sleep, day-in and day-out is easy to fall into, but it’s so important that we take the time, even a few minutes, to enjoy and feed our passions, and stick to our values.

Easier said than done, but we owe ourselves to do our best.

 

No matter how many shifts we pick up, how much family we have to care for, how tired we get, let’s remember to always make time for our joys and values.

We’ll feel renewed, and know we’re heading in the right direction.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Golden Path | Stand Tall

It’s important to be aware of not only how we treat others, but how we treat ourselves.

Often we’ll notice that we treat and view others as more important, competent, skilled, etc, than ourselves.  This can become immensely obvious when we find ourselves rejecting praise, be it from friends, coworkers, or bosses.

It’s so important that we don’t sell ourselves short.  If we don’t believe in ourselves, others will start to wonder why they should believe in us.

Let’s treat ourselves with kindness, put effort into believing in ourselves, hold our heads high, and walk tall.

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’

Fairytale Path | Ute Valley Park

It’s hard not to find a beautiful scene when taking a stroll through nature.

This view was so reminiscent of a fairytale, it proved a great chance to practice editing.  A great inspiration to try creating more fantastical and magical works with vivid colors and hues.  Bright reds and purples definitely come to mind!

Nature is gorgeous on its own, but sometimes it’s fun to push it and remake the reality we’ve captured before us.

Let’s make time to immerse ourselves is what brings us the most joy and hope, be it a quiet read on the porch, time with loved ones, or a hike among the hills and mountains.
