Making Time for Beauty

Fern Canyon has been one of our must-see places for years and last week my husband and I finally made it happen. The hike through the canyon was an easy one yet wearing water shoes did help as the canyon floor is covered with water most of the time. The 100 foot walls of the canyon were covered with ferns and moss with tiny little waterfalls running between them. We experienced something magical as we walked through the coolness of the earthy-smelling canyons surrounded by the lush ferns and downed trees that lay along the bottom of the canyon like natures art. This kind of experience soothes my soul. It makes everything seem right in the world for just a little while.

Do you make time for beauty in your life? I realize that we can’t go to places like Fern Canyon everyday but you can make a choice to surround yourself with the beauty of what makes you happy everyday. Think about your favorite colors. Do you make sure your favorite colors are present in your home? Do you surround yourself with beautiful art pieces, pictures of the people whose faces make you smile, or fresh cut flowers?

The beauty that you experience on the outside becomes the beauty you reflect from the inside.


I am 54 years-old and the mother of three grown children. In the last five years, I left a profession I was in for over 20 years, I moved to a new city, re-married, went back to school to discover a new profession, and became a grandma for the first time. I also am pursuing my passion for writing. I am writing a children's picture book and I started my first blog ever. For years I was afraid of change but I now I embrace it
