i went hiking a few days ago and i just LOVED seeing all the colorful leaves. in past years, i never really took time to pay attention and to appreciate the beauty that is fall/autumn. the season usually goes by so quickly, but this year seems different. no matter where you are, nature is out there, all the time and it can bring about some beautiful thoughts about life and to live in the moment. there was no complaining or feeling stress or worry. i’d much rather live this way.
