A Walk in the Park, Following the Path to the Light - Landscape Painting

"Autumn Walk"

It looks like I have a thing with painting paths in the woods that lead to light, I wonder what Freud would say about this passion of mine.  :)
I'm sure it means something positive, because that's how I feel while I paint paths and when I look at them: Positive and Optimistic.

Every person is walking a different path in life, but we all are trying to reach different destinations, our personal goals.
Walking to the light can represent many things: reaching "success", getting the job of our dreams, being able to graduate after studying so long, etc. What destination are you trying to reach?

It's good to have goals in mind that act as motivators to make us do better, more.

I think the important thing is to focus on the destination, yes, but without losing appreciation for the NOW, the present, the walk itself.

We should avoid to live our lives always wanting what we don't have.

Happiness is not to be found, 
but to be brought to life from within.

Only if we find inner-balance and self-acceptance we have a chance to find happiness.
