This is Your Life!

I think this is terrific!  In fact, I have a printed copy on my wall.  It’s from a company called Holstee.  We should all try to practice this more.  This is not Grand Theft Auto.  It’s your life!

From the website:

“Originally written as a reminder of the aspects of life they truly valued, Holstee’s founders, Dave, Mike and Fabian, never imagined that their personal goals could reach and resonate with so many others. As people around the globe shared the Manifesto, they were thrilled and humbled to find a community of those who aspired to the same hopes of finding true passion and living life to the fullest.”

So, take a read, watch the video, and if inspired to do so click the link to buy a print.  I just copied the link and am in no way compensated but wanted to share…

“This is your life. Do what you want and do it often. 
If you don’t like something, change it. 
If you don’t like your job, quit.
If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.
Stop over-analysing, life is simple.
All emotions are beautiful.
When you eat, appreciate every last bite.
Life is simple.
Open your heart, mind and arms to new things and people, we are united in our differences.
Ask the next person you see what their passion is and share your inspiring dream with them.
Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.
Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating.
Life is short, live your dream and wear your passion.”

Black Run Summer Hike

I previously posted about the Black Run Preserve (click to read post)  and posted photos from a Black Run hike (click to see photos).  I recently went for a visit and saw some excellent improvements to the entrance and new markings of various trails.  Black Run Preserve will be developed as a multi-use space for non-motorized biking, hiking, nature and bird watching.  There will be no camping or fires permitted.

Trail Head

Although the entrance is now gravel and includes a fence line to welcome you, the rest is presently left natural.  There are talks of a parking lot and restrooms, but that is far off.  For now, we get to enjoy it as a natural and pristine environment.

Bog

This land was, at one time, a cranberry bog.  There is little that remains but what remains has created a very rich environment.

The trails are marked clearly and it is an easy walk through the South Jersey sandy soil.

Red Trail Black Run Hike

Nature’s abound including wild berries such as blueberries, huckleberries and maybe even some cranberries.

Wild Blueberries

This was interesting.  Does anyone know why butterflies would huddle in one place on the trail?

Thanks for visiting!  Come back again soon.
