“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss
Great times come and go. The people in our lives who we love and care for might one day be gone like that. It’s hard not to be sad when those times are over, but we should always celebrate what we have. Too often we get caught up in what we have lost instead of looking at what we have gained. It goes back to making sure we have our priorities in line, and focusing on enjoying the present. The present will be gone like that, and we don’t want to not appreciate it when it is here. For some that might mean making huge life decisions such as career changes. If your job is holding you back from appreciating what is important in your life, maybe it is time to make a change. It could be as simple as schedule changes or a new location to work at. We have to prioritize what is important in order to appreciate the value of what we have now.
I took these photos when I visited South Mountain State Park last summer. We were camping nearby in Golden Valley, and I was looking for somewhere to explore and hang out at. My son and I hiked about three miles to check out all of the sites. We found two awesome waterfalls along the way. This is a must visit park to check out because of the beautiful well-kept trails and amazing sites to see. We only saw part of the park that day, and I hope I can visit again in order to see more of it.
