Chasing Waterfalls 3

Monday, October 21, 2019

Good Monday MOrning!
This waterfall was kind of hidden behind a tree. But I like the way it looks peeking out. Even in the rain it was lovely. There is something soothing about the sound of cascading water.
I live in a beautiful spot right on the Delaware River. We have a lot of established trees in our yard. Over the years we have lost a lot of the trees, either from hurricanes knocking them down or from them dying. We have replaced several of them.
Over the last three years all of the oak trees are dying from a disease. We tried to save them, but last month we had to have one that was completely dead taken down to insure it would not fall on either us or our neighbors.
This weekend we went tree shopping to look for a replacement. It was fun looking at the possibilities at the tree farm.
At times in this weight loss journey we have to get rid of dead wood, things that are just not working, and replace it with new healthy choices. It is hard to let go. I was sad when the tree was being taken down, but seeing the new possibilities was exciting.
I find when I face each potential problem or obstacle, each change, with a positive attitude, I make better choices and feel good about myself.
SO I am letting the waterfall wash over me in positivity today. NO matter what comes my way I will face it with a smile.
