The Commoner Life blog

Hello again, Its been a while since I`ve been active here.  To start fresh, I`m doing things a bit differently now.   This space will be more about my journey and how I learn from nature.  I`m using my love of photography to communicate different messages through my blog post. They are as much a part of my message.  This is where I can share a bit more about what I learn, how I learn it and where I learn it while out in nature. 

Today I went out for a walk in the nice cool winter air.  I woke up this morning with a need to understand or at least get some answers about my life choices.  I`ve been taking a break from my blog, from my online presence and from social media and I still don’t feel any need to go back to it.  Why?

That has been my questioning lately.  Since that has been where my head is at, of course I understand a bit more about this through nature. So during my walk I see this brown grass sticking out of the snow and it brings about this reflection. 


I have to let go of my previous life in order to allow for the unknown to take place.

This is what I see during this time of year.  Lots of brown tall grass that has surrendered to the next phase of its journey.  It has died yet it will return next year.

The same applies to me.  After having gone through so much in a very short time, I found myself needing a complete break from everything.  From the outside, my online presence looks like the brown grass yet I know what I carry inside of me.  It is resting at the moment, gestating and allowing time to do its thing until the next phase gets revealed.

I have learned to wait and trust my process. It’s not something that I can push. I can’t DO my life.  Like nature, I must rest and allow for the winter to sit here.  This brings another reflection from nature.


Learning to accept that this is where I am for the moment.

Nature always shows me how life is happening FOR me and not to me.  She supports me in navigating through the challenges of my life in a real and inspiring way.

As I get back to my day and learn to trust my process, I accept that my life is a reflection of where I am and what I need.  I don’t dwell on expectations. 


Have a great week.

I`m so glad to be back.  Feel free to comment and tell me if nature`s wisdom is as beautiful and inspiring in your neck of the woods. 😉

    Nicole I LOVE THE NEW BLOG!!!! I really do. It speaks to me at a deeper level. I feel your message rather than just reading it…. as I walk the forest and see how it moves you. You are definitely on to something with this… I cannot help but feel it will lead you even further. Thank you xo Sylvie

    I completely relate to your dilemma of when you have been away for so long why do you not feel compelled to return. I used to blog every day. It was rare to miss even one day. Now I don’t even post a daily message on Facebook. By the time I read articles, blogs, and comment on them, there is not time and I don’t even see the need to write something of my own. I feel like part of me is missing when I don’t write – but have not been motivated to start again.

    I’m glad that you have decided that writing and telling your story in photographs and words fulfills you and will help others with their journey too. Welcome back, Nicole.
