Upstream

Ending 2015, my family and I hiked to a waterfall we had visited many times before in summers past (Downstream, 2013). Interesting it is how we often become bored of the things that are familiar. How we perceive them to be the same and overlook them. That is until something as dramatic as water freezing awakens your lackadaisical ignorance. Ha!

Wherever life takes you this year, my wish for you is that you're present. That you deeply experience and appreciate the gifts your life gives; that the words "take for granted" never enter your soul; that the familiar be as wondrous and rewarding as the new.

Happy learning! May the coming year for you be filled with Nature, Beauty and Gratitude!

  1. Hi Will, That is so true how seeing the same thing changes with a new attitude or new perspective. I often marvel at the newness of a repeated walking path as the seasons change or when I change my direction and walk it in reverse. Suddenly it opens up to new sights that were before me all along. Change you lens, shift your attitude, and open yourself up to new possibilities! Sounds like 2016 is sure to be an eye opener!
