Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow
~ Helen Keller
Life is either a great adventure or its Nothing.
Which one are you in?
I have climbed so many high points but I was never in too much awe-overdose with the visible sun than my close-up encounter with the sun as it rises in Kiltepan Peak. This is one travel memory that really shapes up my addiction to sunrises & sunsets. The sun is my favorite subject for photography. For me, its perfect. It’s beauty is endless. Its charm is relentless.
Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye..
Just like most of you, many times when I refuse to look up & appreciate another sunrise,It’s the same moments when I don’t see any reason to feel motivated. I felt like everything is monotonous, a tiresome routine. When I’m stooping down, it’s because my spirit is low. I couldn’t see the good in anything except the shadows, all gloominess in my sight.
I am so thankful for my family and friends who have been there to support me and made me get up, gazing up & looking forward to the new day. Nature has been a place where I get my renewed inspiration. Like a magnet in which I find myself attracted.
Could you imagine a life without nature?
Or a life spent in complete solitude?
I overcome. I learned to look up, fixed my gaze to the beauty of sunshine. I have started to adore the visible sun once again.The pursuit to happiness doesn’t happen overnight. I know it’s easier said than done but it’s also doable. It requires every muscle of your body to move together with your mind. But once you master it, you will be rewarded with a great view.
Life is the fire that burns and the sun that gives light. Life is the wind and the rain and the thunder in the sky. Life is matter and is earth, what is and what is not, and what beyond is in Eternity .
Hope is the most important thing that people need to move forward. The slightest ray of hope can ignite the human spirit’s ability to overcome.
So for my first post for the 7-Days Nature photo challenge, I shared with you breathtaking views from Kiltepan Peak in Philippines. I wrote another post about the beauty of this place in Here.
Although I regularly post nature photos , this particular post and the upcoming 7-day series was inspired by an amazing mind behind the Blog SimpleDimple in response to her 7-Days Nature photo challenge. Stella is writing from her heart, spreading warm love in the great community here in WP. If you have time, please do pass by her page & get to know her through her soulful posts.
