To Believe in the Power of Nature

To Believe in the Power of Nature

 

I choose to believe in the power of nature.

It does not confine me, yet it shows me my limits. It humbles me, then it picks me back up. It welcomes and accepts all who are willing to experience it.

 

I choose to believe in the power of nature.

It is the one place where I am still allowed to truly dream. There is no one to tell me “no” out here. There are only the trees to show me how tall I can become if I stand the test of time– the tribulations of the seasons, strong winds, and frigid downpours. They are a strong fortress to all that tries to break them down.

 

I choose to believe in the power of nature.

The panoramic vistas show me how small I am in this world. Yet, those same mountains I climb prove to me I can conquer anything. They show me even the largest hurdles to overcome can be tackled one small step at a time. The mountains empower me to take on the world, so matter now minute I may seem.

 

I choose to believe in the power of nature.

I watch as the mountains transform from a dead, gloomy landscape to a place teeming with life. The grey and brown that once surrounded me is replaced with carpets and canopies of green sprinkled with bursts of color. The once-quiet woods now put me to sleep with the song of frogs and wake me up to the melody of birds. Just as the barren landscape explodes with life, it reminds me that even life’s trials will one day turn from dim to vibrant.

 

I choose to believe in the power of nature.

The sunshine warms my soul and energizes me; my entire being soaks up its rays. The sun reminds me of how light is so vitally important to life. I watch as the same warming afternoon rays hit the tall grass. The same sunshine and cool breeze energizing me breathes life into the meadow. It dances and shimmers to earth’s sweet song, creating waves as far as the eye can see. It begs me to dance along with it.

 

I choose to believe in the power of nature.

It welcomes me. It allows me to dream. It empowers me. It teaches me. It begs me to dance.
I choose to believe in the power of nature.
