I’ve wanted to visit New York since I was a little girl; I didn’t make it there until I was 22. I took my big camera lens on this trip because I knew I’d see beautiful scenery. I went to Battery Park to get some shots. I was having difficulty focusing the camera because it was sooooo cold. I snapped one last picture before leaving and told myself I would do better tomorrow. I reviewed the camera footage and was proud of myself for getting such a great last shot.
I had already planned to visit Battery Park the next day, but once I saw this beautiful sunset photo, I was extra motivated to go back. The sunset reminded me that although today was ending, tomorrow is coming. A beautiful day led to a beautiful sunset which led to a beautiful night which led to another beautiful day. Another lesson learned while being mindful in nature.
This is the last picture in my book, but it’s not the last life lesson shared. Instead of making another blog for the last life lesson, I decided to include it in this blog. This isn’t the end of me blogging, but it is the end of me blogging about the pictures in my book.
Over the last 8 weeks, I’ve posted a blog related to each picture and life lesson I shared in my book. Wow. I never imagined I’d write a book, write a blog, or sell my nature pictures. This is only the beginning of the NbN journey, and I’m soooo excited for what’s coming next.
I’ve never known my life path and I’m no longer eager to know how it will play out; I’d rather just experience it in real time. I know as long as I keep God first, I’ll be okay. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading my NbN blog posts. I hope by sharing my stories and life lessons that you are able to take away something valuable that will assist you with healing your inner child.
If you, like me, ever feel like giving up because this life is so scary, interesting, funny, and exciting, remember tomorrow is a new day. Tomorrow is a new opportunity to accomplish your goals, to forgive yourself, to love yourself, and to just keep going.
This is the last life lesson: We are all created for a special purpose. Live life, fail, love yourself, fail, explore, fail, try things, fail, love others, fail, travel, fail, cry, fail, read, fail, love hard, fail, hurt, fail, love harder, fail, & most importantly — never stop searching to discover God’s purpose for your life.
So, when I saw this beautiful sunset from Battery Park on my camera roll, I was reminded that tomorrow is a new day. And now that my book is published, the accompanying blogs are posted, and I'm selling my nature prints, I’m reminded that tomorrow is a new day to discover God’s purpose for my life.
Stay tuned to see what I blog about next!
· Sunsets are beautiful reminders that tomorrow is a new day.
How I Apply it to My Life:
· I do my best every day. If I have a bad day, I rest, reflect, reset, and prepare for a new tomorrow.

No such thing as a life that’s better than yours.
