Being a landscape Designer in the Santa Clarita Valley, I know the value of inspiration and the winter in Southern California never fails to provide. I have two wonderful dogs, and I enjoy a walk with them every day. I enjoy the paseos around my home, the wash nearby, and of course Towsley Canyon and other trails. I can’t always take the dogs with to Towsley (when it gets hot those rattlers come out) but they still have their morning walk regardless of where I end up later in the day.
Today I am going to take you on a February walk in photographs, and since I have quite a few of them – I’m going to use them as next week’s Wordless Wednesday too.
It is very important to pause and enjoy, to stop and “smell the roses” in life and on your life’s path. If you just focus on one thing and don’t enjoy the things around you, you will never be inspired and inspiration leads to many wonderful things both in your life and for those you share your life with.
It is wonderful to be a success at what you do, but our world really needs people that are successful at helping others, giving back to the universe, and being there for people in need. Wander, gaze around, day dream – you never know where you’re next inspiration will come from and please don’t think that day dreaming is just for those “creative types” because we really all are creative types.
If Marie Curie or Albert Einstein hadn’t wandered a little bit off the beaten path of their lives, do you really think we’d be where we are today? I don’t. So, get yourself outside and enjoy the day! I know I will.
