"Thank You Mother Nature for Loving Me"


If water could speak, what would it say? Water's current fascinates me. I try to imagine myself floating along the waves. How would it feel to travel where ever water goes? Where would I end up? Since I can't swim, I may never know. I like watching how water moves. It's a calming element that doesn't judge its surroundings. It moves how it wants, where it wants. I like that. I often go to the water when I'm trying to figure out things, people, or both. I quietly ask my questions and symbolically throw them into the water. I let go of unhappy emotions or things that caused me pain into the water. I throw some people in there too, not literally of course! When it comes to people who have hurt me, I always say this prayer when releasing them, "May they find their way and find happiness. May they live well and prosper." You may wonder why I do this. My belief is, despite what's been done I never want to wish anyone harm. There's always a chance for new beginnings. I don't want to hold on to hurt. I've done that and it only leads to bitterness.  I feel no one is worth becoming bitter over. Sometimes I cry by the water. I imagine my tears falling into the waves and my sorrows are carried away. I'm not sure where my tears land, but I do feel better once they are released. The air that comes off the water's current is rejuvenating. I like this the most. It relaxes the mind and my spirit feels free. I appreciate water and how it affects my life. It's comforting.


I love the sun. I love the way it looks, and the colorful variations it gives the sky. Sun not only provides warmth but happiness. It makes me smile. Sunsets are my favorite. The way its light bounces off the clouds and water is magnificent! Sun is my guide. At times when I'm not sure where to go in this journey called life, sun seems to direct my steps. Since I was a little girl, I looked to the sun for guidance. I used to talk to it. It provides light when my vision is clouded, and warms my heart when it feels sad. It makes my days happier. I like being under it.

I love clouds too, especially when the sun hides behind them. I feel this is me sometimes. There are moments I want to hide from the world. It doesn't mean something is necessarily wrong. I may want to hide from what's expected of me or relied on to make others happy. I can't when I'm feeling emotional or going through my own storm. The sun gets tired and hides. I believe the clouds are its pillows shielding it from the world for a moment. Sometimes I want to be shielded too. I love sun's strength. I gain strength from the sun.

Traveling observation 

One of the things I enjoy doing is traveling on a bus, or an elevated train. I like looking out the window and observe life's happenings. I focus more on nature's movement. I observe the weather and scenery taking in each moment. I enjoy this most when listening to music. I listen to songs that reflect my mood. If I'm feeling happy, I listen to house music. A sad mood, I listen to R&B or jazz. When reflective, I listen to soft rock or easy listening. This doesn't happen often, but if I'm frustrated or angry I listen to rock or something loud. Usually when riding the bus or train, I feel reflective. I think about current events in my life, maybe a goal or something I'm working on. Sometimes I daydream about people I want to meet (in my professions), or events I'd like to attend. This may sound funny, but I even think about how I'd like to look in the future. I imagine the clothes I would wear, hairstyles, makeup, and much more. I imagine being successful and living somewhere nice, preferably by the water. I think about the man I hope to meet. I read somewhere that if you want to meet your "match," simply think about him. Imagine how your man would be, and what you'd hope for in him. I like thinking about "my guy," because I know he is possible. He is simple, loving, handsome (in my eyes), ambitious, and has a heart of gold. He would be right for me and I to him. I smile thinking about "him."

When it rains, I like the way raindrops scatter on the window of a bus or train. It's like nature saying, "Here you go." Clouds
are interesting to look at too. The way they change within seconds is amazing. They seem to be bigger when it rains, and fluffier when the sun is out. Traveling at night is just as pretty. It's interesting to see the way car lights bounce off the dark road, or station lights  make a train station glow. I like how the sky turns into a rich blue color as night arrives. Sometimes a lonely cloud will hang around giving the sky more beauty. I get so lost observing the scenic route that I forget I have to eventually get off.

When I get to be one with nature, like on a beach, I always feel grateful. I don't live in a natural environment so I appreciate the times when I'm in one. The beach is special to me for many reasons. It makes me feel more connected to God. I feel safe and content. I thank God for loving me despite my flaws or shortcomings. Thank you Mother Nature for loving me.
