Nurture Yourself – with Serenity


Bench-Peaceful-2-webSerenity                          2015©photography by Isadora

Because of our daily stress filled lives, we need to create a quietly calm

and peacefully still place where we can feel tranquility.

Whether you meditate or not the focus is to clear your mind of thoughts.

Our imagination can help us with this very difficult task of relaxing

by providing us the ability to dream of magical places.

I love to visualize a garden filled with flowers of every imaginable color.

It’s an image that can make anyone smile.

Nurturing yourself at the end of the day can help with better

peaceful relaxing sleep for better health.

Can you imagine a place of serenity?

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  2. This is a beautiful post, I used to imagine a lake and I’m floating, feeling the cold of the water on my back, and the heat of the sunshine on my face. Long time I haven’t done it, next time I’ll imagine a garden like you suggested.


  3. I agree with the other comments–perfect picture for the theme of this post, Izzy.

    A place of serenity? I knew one–lying down next to Scrappy and petting him. I’m going to have to find another one, huh?

  4. You done it very well Izzy..Levitate..pray..the best medication..Nice serene photo.


  5. Ahh, the gentle swaying of moss lifts my spirit, and reminds me of home. So wish it would be considered part of the norm to teach meditation at an earlier age … what amazing benefits for the individual lives as well as collective body of individuals. Namaste, Issy~~


    • I think a great many would find it helpful and beneficial to learn how to quiet the mind and go within. Trees with benches are my favorite places to sit and contemplate besides the beach. The birds flying bring a peaceful quiet like no other. I, too, enjoy the moss swaying in the breeze. I think it’s the reason I enjoyed New Orleans – in addition to jazz – when we’ve visited there. Namste 🙏


  6. Wow what a picture… and great piece of writing too 🙂 Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂 ❤


  7. Gorgeous tree. Gorgeous photo, Izzy. Who would expect less though?


  8. What a lovely photo! When I imagine myself in places of serenity, I am more likely to picture myself walking through them rather than sitting; but that bench looks like a very inviting place to stop and rest during a hike!


    • I, too, love to wlak through garden paths. They are quiet and peaceful. My knees have a short attention span lately and want to sit. I am at a point that I listen to them as I am concerned about falls. 😀
      This is a serene garden spot created at the home/museum of Mabel Ringling in Sarasota, Florida. A place I frequently visit for its’ magnificent gardens festooned with benches shaded by magnificent trees. I’m happy you enjoyed viewing this photo. 🙏


  9. I’m so speechless… Thank you so much, Isadora!


  10. Very serene and beautiful, Isadora! 🙂


I'd Love to hear what you think. Thanks ...
