About a week ago my very inquisitive nephew asked me why I love nature so much. My answer was not good enough for him so I posed the same question to a few of my friends who love nature as much as I do. Turns out It is not an easy question. I watched them squirm trying to come up with a good answer…Below is a collection of their responses.
Because it takes care of itself, animals roam freely without disturbance & it is self-sustaining… Hard question
Nature gives me a sense of peace. There is something about it that is refreshing.
The green vegetation makes our land beautiful, cleans our air and prevents erosion. Acha kusumbua akili yangu!
I love natures ability to make me breathless because of its beauty. Whats special about it? Hmmm…can’t explain, just the shear beauty and Godliness.
Nature reminds me of the origins. I love the way I connect with nature and what it brings in me. It makes me be at peace with myself and the world.
I love nature because it is perfect. It is beautiful and relaxing.
The landscapes give a sense of space and freedom and I love space and freedom hence yeah. I love anything that brings it out.
I believe nature is a mystery and we may not be able to fully explain why we are drawn to it. it is tied to our very existence. It is beautiful, always finds a way to amaze us, it never complains, it is dynamic and it always calms us when we are distressed. So the next time you feel under pressure take a walk and connect with nature…It heals.
I will end it with one of my favorite nature quotes…
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
Until next time…
Love & more love
