Let Nature Provide The Answers
Photo by: Sonyo Estavillo

I love sunflowers because they have such a radiant and happy spirit to them. There’s such an energy in nature that you can’t get in the concrete jungle.

I’m always looking for something to pause at, something to admire, something beautiful to photograph. I saw these sunflowers on my way home from a family outing and had my husband stop the car so that I could jump out and snap this picture.

Life can be consuming, but we don’t have to be swallowed up by it. People can be draining, but we can choose to not allow ourselves to be taken down by them. Circumstances can be taxing, but we can decide to shift our perspective.

Nature is often a passive thought, one that carries less importance in many lives. But, the type of tranquility and peace that it brings can’t be bought in stores or manufactured by man.

If you are seeking peace, try taking a walk and you just might find all the answers in nature’s beauty.

    That is true. I think once you see the peacefulness in nature or even in something that you have not realized before I think that is a treasure. Indeed, it is something that human can manufacture.

      There’s nothing like nature and relaxing in it! I really love nature walks and love being connected to nature. I always feel centered and more at peace.

    Beautiful picture! And you’re right, nature often brings us peace. The effect nature can have on us is sometimes a mystery to me however it can help us to find peace within ourselves.

      It is definitely a mystery Suzanne, I am perplexed by how calm I feel after I relax in nature. Sometimes I feel nature almost has supernatural powers. 🙂

      It is so true. Just finding something to photograph helps me feel better. Especially since I don’t find sunflowers often.

    I love this. I’m a nature-admirer myself, and that’s where I feel comfortable (except with the mosquitoes or wasps want to swarm around me.) The sunflower is one of my friends’ favorite flowers and was her wedding flower theme! They are very beautiful to photograph and gaze upon. And I fully agree PEACE is found within nature – and walk among it long enough, you’ll find it in yourself.

      Awe, thank you! I rarely see sunflowers in weddings but it’s the best flower to have at a wedding in my opinion. Sunflowers represent happiness for me. I absolutely ❤ sunflowers! I'm always at peace in nature, always. Thanks for your comment, it's valued. 🙂

    Taking a step back and enjoying the beauty of nature that surrounds us is amazingly peaceful. Love that picture as well! 🌻
