I stopped yesterday to view my surroundings, We are fortunate and grateful we live in the Peak District National Park, with it's hills and dales. In contrast our eldest daughter now live's in London with it's hustle and bustle, everything moving at a fast pace each day. Yesterday I realised that wherever we live we take our surroundings for granted, we are so focused on moving from home to work we miss what is actually around us.
The Peak District is an upland area in England at the southern end of the Pennines. It is mostly in northern Derbyshire, but also includes parts of Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Staffordshire, West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire. An area of great diversity, it is split into the Dark Peak, where most of the moorland is found and the geology is gritstone, and the limestone area of the White Peak.
The Peak District National Park became the first national park in the United Kingdom in 1951. With its proximity to the cities of Manchester, Stoke-on-Trent, Derby and Sheffield, and access by road and rail, it attracts millions of visitors every year.

I Used to work 50-60 hours per week, I had a commute of 40 minutes to get to work. On my way I would pass rivers like the image above and yet I took them for granted. Now I work from home, I work the amount of hours I wish to BUT I stop and take in the wonder of nature. I realise how many people travel to visit this area , 22 million a year !! Each week my wife and I make it a goal to walk somewhere we have never been before and it is usually with in a 10 minute drive of our home. How much have I missed all these years.
Wherever you live, STOP, look around you, even if you live in a city we are surrounded by History, Nature and interesting places we have never visited. Make it YOUR goal to once a week or once a month to visit, call in, view something you take for granted where you live.
I decided to "Change My Life" to be happy and fulfilled by achieving my purpose, I have a property business and an online business. I have learnt to serve others ( as I hope I am doing now ) respect others for what they are trying to achieve no matter how big or small their ambition. I work on my attitude each day and look to help anyone I can on a daily basis.
