So I was going for my daily run, and I happened to come across this bare area at the end of a cul de sac. It’s totally removed from the rest of the neighborhood. I can hear and see all kinds of birds chirping, behind me there is a small stream trickling away..its so peaceful. It looks like it used to be a tennis court, albeit one that nature is starting to reclaim.
This made me stop and think. Our world is so beautiful; there are so many hidden treasures around us.Sometimes we have to step off of the beaten path to find these secluded spots. But then sometimes they are where we least expect them.
As I sit here and soak up this peaceful atmosphere, all of the junk that’s plaguing the world seems ti just fade away…the gentle breeze has washed away my anxieties from earlier…this is beautiful.
One day the entire planet will be wrapped in paradise once again…and I hope I have the privilege to enjoy then, as I am now…keep this in mind when things are getting to you, when the rat race is overwhelming you. Just take the time to go exploring; to step off the beaten path. You might be pleasantly surprised. -Gymel Smythe
