Some say there are no coincidences in life.  That everything in front of you is either a gift or simply put there as a lesson.  And it is up to you to figure it all out….

When you check your surroundings, you can immediately be in tune to how you are feeling.  Life is a reflection of you!

So what does it say about me, the woman who paints hearts, surrounds herself with hearts, says I-love-you all the time – even using it as one of the steps in a plaster of Paris lesson, lol  (my students know what I am talking about) that I am seeing hearts on the trail at Green Lakes?

It doesn’t seem real.  I mean, I never noticed them before, you know? And yet, here they are – hearts in mulch, in leaves, in stone….

It’s just so beautiful and adds another dimension to my happy place!  I guess I am in love with love.  It is so special.  I am soooo grateful to have Green Lakes State Park in my life. It is the best! ❤

Not sure if these pictures do justice to the beauty that is Green Lakes in autumn.  OMG, yesterday was spectacular.  Talk about being in a happy place!!!! It is just so wonderful.

Sometimes I think there’s no place I would rather be and when I am there I feel like anything is possible.  It is such a profound thing to find a place that feels like home where I can be the real me.

When I am there, any silly drama that has gripped me ceases to exist and I am just filled with happiness and joy.

Corny, I know.  But there are certainly times when I can get lost inside my head – and then I start thinking too much about a disappointment, thinking what I could have done differently so that I could have had the outcome I desired.

They always say that everything happens for a reason.  The universe is on your side and all that.  That life will present you with everything you ask for as long as you are grateful.  As long as you shed your worry, fear, stress and doubt.

They say that you can be a magnet for miracles.  I have seen loads of miracles happen throughout my life and so I do have a lot of faith. But then, something happens once in a blue moon and you just can’t understand why it didn’t…why it doesn’t work out.

Walking around Green Lakes now, with the crisp orange leaves crackling at every step, creates a sort of blanket of love around me. And I am free to trust in my dreams again and know for certain that they will come true – maybe not in the way I thought or expected, but I know in my heart that it will be a magnificent outcome nonetheless.
