I took this picture with my iphone on the bank of the Cape Fear River while the sun was setting. The light was so beautiful over the brown (LOL!) flowing ripples of water. Muddy bottom equals muddy water.
In the background is a train trestle. All the times I have visited the river I have never hear or seen a train pass over.
In the foreground, you can see the mud from the recent severe flooding that occurred in the area. The water rose up to the bottom of the train trestle. Incredible to see.
Despite the it's muddy scars, there is still beauty to be found and nature moves on. Time did not stop and life moved on.
Disappointments and setbacks happen in life, but how we recover and response to those stressful, frustrating, or sad passing moments defines our lives.
Rise Up. Refocus. Lessons learned. Keep flowing forward through life.
Thank you for reading.
