Well – I wrote this amazing post about Green and then poof it was all gone. Ah technology!! Or maybe user error! Anyway….I could have used some green therapy when I lost my amazing words. 🙂 Let me tell you about Green.
The color Green can bring about feelings of calming, peacefulness, excitement, compassion and nature. Green can also symbolize luck, wealth, health, and new beginnings. One of my favorite outside activities is hiking. I love finding new trails to explore that bring me to waterfalls, history, or other interesting finds that nature gives us. Being outside, in the forest makes me feel calm. I can take a deep breath of fresh air and let go all that troubles me. As I clear my mind, I also get excited. Excited to find something interesting to photograph or excited to have a feeling of starting something new. I usually get good ideas while out and about!
I recently learned that green is an “in” color for kitchens and guess what! My kitchen has been painted green for years! Green is a soothing color and can calm and inspire you. Next time you are feeling blue, I suggest you get outside and take in all the beautiful greens nature has to show us. I can’t wait for nature to bring on Spring!
Here are few of my favorite images from some of my hiking adventures. I hope they give you a sense of serenity and peace!
Forest trail in Mt. Rainer National Park – imagine hearing the rush of the river near by, the birds chirping, and the smell of Christmas trees!
While hiking in Raccoon State Park, I looked over and notice this cardinal amongst the new growth. I can’t wait for Spring to show us her new colors this year!
While the trees aren’t yet green, this pool at the bottom of the waterfall was a sparkling emerald green. Makes you want to jump right in!
