“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir

We’ve been brought up in this ever-changing, gotta-get-ahead world of technology, buzz feeds, reality television and Bieber.ย ๐Ÿ˜ย I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, but there are certain parts of society that, for a lack of a better word, sucks and a lot of the times it helps to step into nature and take in the lessons it can teach you.ย There’s something to be said about connecting to nature.

There’s something to be said about connecting to nature. The rhythms of the flowing rivers can calm your mind. The majesticness of raging waterfalls can make you realize the simplicity of life. Sleeping under the stars reminds you that you are just one small part the infinite vastness of the universe. When you’re out in nature, nothing else matters. You are held to your own accord. You face the challenges nature hands you. You come to terms with yourself. And you may even make discoveries you wouldn’t have otherwise sitting at your office desk pushing those pencils.

Yes, get ahead in life. Man’s advancements in our developing society have done humanity right in many ways. But there’s nothing like getting in touch with nature and with yourself.ย I’ve done many hikes – the most I’ve ever done in the past year – and I’ve grown and learned more about myself in the past year than I’ve even done in my entire life. I intend to keep going. There are so many hikes around the world that I intend to trek and so many ways for me to appreciate nature and her lessons. I hope in my posts in this section you will find your call to nature. I’d love to hear of your experiences. Please do share!ย ๐Ÿ˜ŠโœŒ๏ธ
