Fall is in the air, the perky nip of cooler weather is there to greet me in the morning when I let the dog out. 16 degrees C, ( 45 F). The fall has to be my favourite season of all.. I enjoy each one of our very different seasons, but fall weather has a special place in my heart. Every year around this time the leaves start to work their magic on the landscapes. The lazy hazy days of summer disappear, there is a quicker and snappier mood to our walk. The fall clothes come out, the warm sweaters, closed in shoes, and wonderful combinations of casual fashion.
It is true, in the fall you are more likely able to draw me out into nature, the bugs and insects are not around, and where I would love a night in this cabin, I really feel the we would have problems taking the dogs out at night. The next picture is of a “pond” in a secluded area of Nova Scotia, Canada where someone camps. We have been to such locations in our travels, believe me, the exhilaration of such moments is beyond words.
In my personal journey to become a better person, I enjoy my time away as much as my time in the city. Life is wherever I am. It is when we stop moving forward in our lives that we grow stagnant. One one personal card I had printed, read, Discover a new you…. explore active meditation…. Step outside the box. What is active meditation, active meditation is when you live each moment of your day with Makoto (sincerity) with a focus on being a better person in all you say and do. Like the world we live in (nature) our moods and self expression changes. When we accept that the only constant in life is change, then we are well on our path to living with a peaceful heart.
May your day be blessed with an abundance of happiness and joy!
