Satisfaction – A Day in Nature!


This week, share a photo of something that brings you satisfaction. It can be monumental, minor, or something in between.

“The dragonfly spiritually embodies the stripping away of negativity that holds us back, helping us to achieve our dreams and goals. Dragonflies are the keepers of dreams, the energy within that sees all of our true potential and ability. Dragonflies inspire spirituality and creativity, they help us on the path of discovery and enlightenment. They reminder us that anything is possible.” ~ Beauty and the Green ~


I had the pleasure of watching butterflies, dragonflies and bees enjoying a nice sunny day in the Saratoga National Historical Park. The butterflies teased with this fluttering wings coming and going too quickly to capture with my camera yet this little lady stopped to pose for my camera. Possibly she received as much satisfaction as me.

Please take your time to feel the satisfaction I felt while enjoying a long walk through the park. This is one of the places near my childhood home that still touches my heart and reminds me of wonderful times spent with family. A place to slow down, enjoy nature and all her many blessings.

A sweet little deer was walking out of the woods as I stepped on a twig and we were both startled. A quick peek and gone not to be seen again on this walk.

“To be able to look back upon on one’s life in satisfaction, is to live twice.” ~ Khalil Gibran ~

Do you have a place that you visit that brings you satisfaction? A place that reminds you to slow down and notice your surroundings?

Hope you enjoyed my stroll through the Park. If you are ever in the area stop in and take a walk on the trails or the road. If you don’t feel like a walk take a leisurely drive and stop to see the sights along the way. You can read more about Saratoga National Historical Park here: https://www.nps.gov/sara/index.htm

  2. Indeed there can be nothing more satisfying than being with the nature and nurturing our senses. This is something we all have systematically forgotten or we have started ti take our nature for granted. We are so much entangled in our daily routines and the hustle and bustle of city life we rarely venture out into the nature. We are more and more becoming digitally hooked and distancing ourselves from our own self by being away from the nature. Butterflies are such wonderful creatures, they make the nature magical and something we all had enjoyed a lot playing in our childhood and now we just ignore or not able to relate and reflect. There is something wrong in our perspective towards our life and living. The pictures captured of Saratoga National Park is highly tempting for nature lover like me…

    This is lovely post with such profound thoughts, thanks for sharing with us.

      • I really enjoyed the way you have captured the myriad hues of nature and depicted it’s colorful manifestation and just being in the nature make us a better person and purifies our cluttered thinking, just that we have unknowingly have distanced ourselves and harming ourselves by doing so.
