When you love something, how do you show it?

Do you remember to appreciate it day after day - through ups and downs and all that life might throw at you? Do you take the time to let it know how much you care? Do you smile when you think about the pleasure it brings you and look forward to spending more time together?

I think places can hold special spots in our hearts - just as much if not sometimes more than human interactions. These relationships enrich our lives - touching you spiritually, emotionally and physically.

A wise boxing coach once told me - you are the master of your own destiny.

If you've discovered a place, a person, or a thing, that touches you and makes you happy every time you encounter it - then logically you should be pursuing it, right? So why don't more people follow their passions? Why do they let the ordinary pressures of life get in the way? Why to they allow themselves to feel trapped and balk at the idea of challenging the status quo? Why don't they get outside and just be?

Do yourself a favor - the next time you find yourself some where beautiful - go back there. Do whatever it takes to visit that special place again. You owe it to yourself.
