It was a beautiful day for a walk in our woods a few weeks ago.  I love this daily walk, and when the snow comes I will put on my skis and again enjoy the friendly warmth of the woods.

As I walked along that day, I noticed the path was obstructed with tops of two 30 ft dead trees.  I said to myself, “I’ll have to ask for help with this.”  Then I surveyed the fallen tree tops, which were only about 10 feet long each and they had dead branches I was able to break off.

As I started cleaning up the debris, I was aware of how happy I was to do this chore. It wasn’t as difficult as I thought, and the brush created another shelter for little wildlife in the woods. I also rescued a couple of small white pine that had limbs lying on them.

Sometimes you think you can’t, or you think you can’t change,   and when you assess the situation it really isn’t as bad as you perceived it to be.  What are the possibilities?  How can it be any better than this?   Stop, listen to your heart, and take action toward new possibilities!
