The Vibrant Colors of Fall

A walk down the nature trail on a warm fall day is soothing to the mind, and listening to the birds seems to have a calming effect when you take the time to enjoy it.

The vibrant colors of fall are a sight to behold. The yellows, oranges and the little bits of red against the autumn sky are truly inspiring to the amateur photographer in me.

Here is a collections of photos that depict the changing of the season.

The beavers are even busy preparing for the winter ahead by taking down some trees.

A Forgiving Heart

Be the one who nurtures and builds. Be the one who has an understanding and a forgiving heart one who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them.

Advice From A Tree

Stand up tall and proud.
Sink your roots into the earth.
Be content with your natural beauty.
Go out on a limb.
Drink plenty of water.
Remember your roots.
Enjoy the view!

Mastering Change

“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude
toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather
than allowing it to master you.”

~ Brian Tracy
