Been thinking a lot about nature and my place in it.
After writing my Earth Day Post, I began to spend a lot of time thinking about nature and the world around me. I began to wonder where I fell into this beautiful landscape of oceans and rivers and fields and forests and mountains and more. I began to wonder what my role in this whole ecosystem was and how I was contributing to this relationship I have with nature.
You see, when I am outside, I come alive. Being able to walk among the greenery or stand by the water’s edge is something that fills my heart with joy and calm. I float through life with so much more inner piece when I am enjoying the outdoors. Beautiful scenery inspires me so deeply and reading other’s words about the beauty of nature fills me with just as much inspiration, however, what am I doing in return?
Nature has given me so many gifts and has contributed so much joy to my life, how am I repaying it? I find that I am not doing enough. That is why my goal is to plant more flowers, take more walks, stop driving when it isn’t necessary to, living with less waste, and treating the environment the way it treats me, with respect.
With summer on it’s way, I want to focus more of my writing on the world around me. Not only do I want to use the world as my muse for my writing, I also want to develop content that informs and encourages readers to do their part.
