Sure some days are really hard! But hiding doesn’t help anything!
Some days are really good too. It’s the nature of things. In fact take a walk today in nature. In the countryside or a nearby park. If you live near a body of water go there. Throw a rock or two in the water as you walk along the shoreline
Remove yourself from that which seems overwhelming while you expose yourself to that which is raw, real and still beautiful. Face life head on.
Nothing does that better than nature. If it’s raining than grab an umbrella. Seeing things through raindrops is a wonderful experience also. When I lived in Florida I would race to the shore line on stormy days to watch the waves crash into the boulders, I’d get soaked but it didn’t matter because nature was having it’s way with me. And sometimes the best thing to do is to just go with that flow
So come out from hiding, remind yourself why you’re alive, it’s the nature of things!

Beautiful post… Thank you dear Penny, love, nia
Thank you Nia, xx
Nature feeds my soul, even more so when I am looking out over rugged coastline or hiking in the mountains…one day again. 🙂
You are a “nature child” LuAnn, through and through, so keep those thoughts and memories nestled safe inside you to remind that one day, soon, will come again for both of you! 🙂 xx
I shall indeed get a life, I went to the library and everything and I also interacted with a lorry driver. Versatility is (another one of) my middle name(s).
Too true. Spending some time with nature helps to put everything back into perspective.
Thank you, Isn’t nature wonderful though! 🙂
What a lovely post. I love nature. It shows us true beauty with no make up. It can make us see what life can truly be like with no interference. I love capturing nature in it’s full splendour. I love the vibrant colours and the life going about it’s business with no worries.
Thank you Penny
Thank you! Your photography illustrates your feelings regarding nature in a beautiful way Alastair! 🙂
Thank you Penny. I am trying to improve it. Which I can’t do that much whilst it is in the camera hospital. I miss my camera.
I do love nature.
Beautiful post Penny, no hiding…..I am right there…. in the middle of life!

[Little does Penny know… while she’s outside enjoying the terrific weather… I’m sneaking into her kitchen and stealing a cookie out of the cookie jar] (grins)
How did you know I made cookies today?
Oh please… surely you can’t be serious! I always know when you make cookies LMAO (grins)
Ummm…. got milk?
Always, do you like snickerdoodles?

I used to do that too Penny – race to the shore on the rainy days – when it’s warm enough – it’s the coolest time to be at the beach. Haven’t been able lately – but maybe soon. Nature is amazingly healing isn’t it?! I find it remarkable at times.. and when I don’t get out (like today) – I can feel the void. Thank you dearest one ~ xo Love your way ~ Robyn
Of course you did Robyn! I can see you doing that in fact! Hope the weather clears up soon for you. Have an excellent nights sleep, my dear and special friend and a sunny tomorrow! With much love to you, Penny xo
Thank you very much dear friend of mine! 🙂
