Lately I’ve been struggling to find inspiration within my own city. I’ve never lived anywhere else but Southern California and I feel like I know this place like the back of my hand. The frustration continued to build until I finally decided to do something different. I got in the car and just drove around. I was determined to see my home from an outsiders perspective and find something new. And so I did…
I’ve driven by this dog park a thousand times, but seeing that I don’t own a dog, I’ve never felt compelled to stop here. For whatever reason, something told me today was the day to just go check it out.
I pulled over and parked in the gravel parking lot. I figured I would just walk along the perimeter to get some fresh air. Who knew this beautiful valley of sprawling green grass was hidden behind it?!
My heart swelled with joy.
Lesson learned – there is always something to discover, no matter where you live.
So, my friend. I challenge you to go out and explore today!
Detox from the virtual world and connect with nature.
Even if you swear you have explored every inch of your city, take a different path than usual and look again.
I promise you there is something waiting to be found.
Do you have any cool spots you have discovered in your city?
