I believe in the power of connecting with nature. Nature can center you in a way that nothing else can. Each day, I try to spend time with nature in one way or another. On this special day, my friends and I decided to break up the routine of a busy college schedule that many of us get caught up in and spend some time in quiet reflection in the greenhouse on campus.

We were in the midst of a long and cold winter. Soaking up the sunlight that was shining in the greenhouse so intensely gave us hope that spring was near. It felt so refreshing to absorb that Vitamin D that was so needed! As you can see, we also felt inspired to practice some of our favorite yoga poses. Being immersed in natural life energized us and brought positive vibes that would allow us to live the rest of the day with purpose and a heightened sense of perspective.

We spent time together chatting about our parallel views about life and the beauty that is always present if we can just learn to look for it. Needless to say, we left the greenhouse rejuvenated, relaxed, and blessed at where we were at our journey in life.
