Any reward is only worth the satisfaction it provides; nothing in life can gratify more than contentment. Every moment, I spend with nature, rejuvenates me.
If you want to find peace, go outdoors: bask in the warm sunlight, climb the lush mountains, play with the dancing waves, and gaze at the celestial sky. You might not become the richest or the most successful person; you’ll be the happiest. Is there a better reward?

“All those who love, nature she loves in return, and will richly reward, not perhaps with the good things, as they are commonly called, but with the best things of this world-not with money and titles, horses and carriages, but with bright and happy thoughts, contentment and peace of mind.” -John Lubbock

When it comes to the letter ‘B’ You can be: Brave, Bold, Beautiful, Brilliant, Bored, Bland, Befuddled…
However, I’ll always maintain, B stands for Blue, not Black or Brown.
“Blue color is everlastingly appointed by the deity to be a source of delight.” — John Ruskin

“For me and for thousands with similar inclinations, the most important passion of life is the overpowering desire to escape periodically from the clutches of a mechanistic civilization. To us the enjoyment of solitude, complete independence, and the beauty of undefiled panoramas is absolutely essential to happiness.” -Bob Marshall
