Don’t Underestimate the Power of Nature

Sometimes it can be hard to continuously find motivation to reach your goals.  Second thoughts come up such as,

Is it really worth carrying around all these reusable bags?

or

Can’t I just buy a plastic water bottle when I get to the gym?

and even

A Big-Mac sounds good right about now!

Everyone’s goals and second thoughts are different, but if you haven’t had them yet, I’m sure you will! (or I’m very proud of you!)

When I am hearing these thoughts, it is hard to snap out of it.  The only sure way I know to get back to where you want (and need) to be is to venture into nature!  Petting a few animals reminds me why I choose to be vegetarian.  Swimming in a lake and seeing all the fish and animals reminds me why I don’t use plastic.  Those animals don’t deserve to eat the plastic or have it stuck around their necks!

Seeing beautiful trees and greenery reminds me why I don’t want to cause any harm to our dear Earth!

I know that not everyone has access to all of the beauty I have seen this summer (hope you like these pictures!), but there are other ways!  Fresh air always helps clear the mind.  If you want, you can send me a message, and I’ll send you pictures!  You can always find pictures from actual professional photographers online too!

No matter how you personally choose to do it, I ask you to meditate on the beauty of our Earth and how you treat our home.

  1. Beautiful article. You have summarised in this post the entire aims of our blog. Environmentalism and a few reminders of why it’s so important! I’m not perfect and have a long way to go before I’m as green as I’d like to be but working towards it! Thanks for being another reminder of why it’s so important to try 😊

  2. I can’t see your photos on my phone but I’ll try on the laptop tomorrow. I am fully in tune with your thoughts on nature though. Walking my dog in the woods and meadows is my way of relaxing and meditating on life. It clears my head, lifts my spirits and keeps my old joints moving!
