Sometimes it seems that if we want to do something new and different, we look far away for our inspiration. Believe it or not, though, there are many wonderful things to see nearby, close to where you live. We just tend to think that since they are so close, we'll always have a chance to see them, so we put them off until some other time. This is why so many New Yorkers die before they see the Statue of Liberty, and why so many people in Arizona and Southern California and Nevada never have seen the Grand Canyon.
But we don't have to go far away to have a good time or to see something exciting. We can find those things close by--all we have to do is look for them, and make the decision to visit them as soon as we can. If we don't do this, we risk missing out on some of the nicest things around, thinking that the better things to see have to be further away. It's a lot like we treat ourselves, thinking that the best things are outside of ourselves, while we have some pretty marvelous characteristics and traits inside of ourselves all the while.
What's near you that's beautiful? What's amazing that's located nearby that you haven't yet seen or experienced? You can find those things and enjoy them immensely, but only if you look for them and then make the decision to visit them and make them a part of your life, a part of your memories, a part of all that you've experienced on this beautiful planet of ours.
