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.
