Misty Autumn Forest | Resistance

Resistance can have a big impact on our lives.

It keeps us in a rut, automatically following the same well-worn paths we’ve been walking for so long.

When ever we want to change for the better (which is hopefully often!), resistance is there to meet us.

Do we let it stop us?

Hopefully…no.

Realistically…it’s at least going to put up a fight.  And that’s our cue to acknowledge our resistance to change, and push forward anyway.

The first hurdles are always the hardest.  We need to jump over them anyway.  We’ll slip, we’ll fall back into our old routine, but each time we need to get back up and move forward.

Habits take time to dismantle and recreate, but it can be done!

How do you want to change yourself for the better?  What goals are you working on, and what new habits are you trying to instill?  How do you overcome resistance?

Let’s keep our goals and values in mind, and keep moving forward!

Let’s make the time to get outside and enjoy the beautiful views, if only for a little while.

Pink Buds | End of a Season

The end of the warmer seasons is here, and as the colder weather blows in, it’s helpful to think back on our goals and priorities.

Why wait until New Year to think about how we’re doing and where we’re going?

Life has a way of flying by, so let’s take more opportunities throughout the year to do some serious contemplation on our lives, what they are, and what we want them to be.

Big goals are best broken down into smaller, more manageable goals, so why not consider checking in with our biggest dreams four times a year?

However we go about setting and monitoring our goals, let’s be sure to take the time to reflect on our lives.

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.

Kindness is never wasted, even if shown to those who may not notice or return it.

Let’s always be kind to others, but let’s also remember to be kind to ourselves.  Let’s give ourselves love and acceptance, so that we can better love and accept those we meet in life.

Much Love,

Roman.

Warm Memories

Gold Fall

Winter is just about to truly start, though it feels like it’s been winter for some time!

While everything is covered in snow, it’s nice to reflect on the warmer colors of Fall~

Abstract Tree Trunk

Colorful Tree Trunk

This beautiful yet oddly colored wood belongs to a fallen tree just a few yards into North Cheyenne Cañon Park.  With the bursts of color and scraped bark, it almost looks like an abstract painting, haphazardly painted with a dry brush.
