My favorite thing about nature
My favorite thing about nature is the prompt for today. I have been posting about how I like to be close with nature as much as possible. That is all of the good things. I like nature when it is not angry. I like it when it is peaceful when all I can hear are natural sounds.
When you ask me what is my favorite thing about nature, it would be everything - the good and the bad. Although I have already said that I only like the good but the bad has to happen because that is what nature is all about. Just like in life the good and the bad happen at once at the same time, one after the other. It is a cycle.
When we say nature, it's not fake. It's real. It's simple. It's complex. It's contrasting. It's complimenting.
Just like the photo above which I have taken at Sam's Agritourism Park, we can see how the different colors compliment each other. We may not appreciate one of the colors in particular but to see things in a bigger picture we realize how everything comes together.
Nature teaches us a lot of only have to stop and think and learn to appreciate nature, how it works. It is very relatable in life.
It also teaches us to see things in a different perspective.
This is not the same flower as above but this is growing from the same bush.
Nature also teaches us that we may look the same but we are unique. We have our own beauty, our own abilities, our own talents. We shine in our own way and to things differently yet we grow all the same and from the same source. We are all part of nature and we are connected more than you want to believe it or not.
Our actions and words affect others directly and indirectly just like how nature works. The flowers need the bees, the sun, the rain to grow. In turn, flowers make this world a better place with their beauty and colors. Same is true with you. So just be you. Do you.
My favorite thing about nature is that I learn from it.
The nicest thing someone has done for me is treating me like a person. That I matter. That I am acknowledged. That I am accepted.
I couldn't reiterate enough how kindness goes a long way. Just a simple hi, a genuine smile, a helping hand may make a difference.
Going back to the actions and words, we create ripples that can become waves and those come back to us maybe not in the same way or manner that we did but in many ways. It may not event directly affect but those around us.
How hard can it be to be nice? To be kind? It takes less energy and it makes you feel good inside, not stressed, not worried, but happy and feel good that you have done something right.
Kindness should be our nature. We may not have a lot, we may not be as good as everyone else but kindness wins.
