This weekend I got in touch with a different side of my personality: the nature loving one. It’s the part of me that often gets buried underneath daily worries, fears and your garden variety neuroticism. While tending to issues are important, so is taking a break from them. Based on the outpouring of responses I got concerning outdoor activities on Facebook, it seems like I might not be the only one. Isn’t it nice basking in the ray of hope and possibility instead of fear and uncertainty every once in awhile?
That’s what I spent my time doing in a rustic cottage in the country. I stared out the French doors of the tiny cottage for several minutes without fear of boredom or anxiety from doing nothing. I heard and felt comforted by the subtle soundtrack created by the sounds of chickens and horses nearby. The cold floor underneath my feet and the slight creaking my footsteps made on it were music to my ears. I reveled in the experience and after a few days of succumbing to every wish and request my body and mind had for rest and relaxation, I left feeling refreshed and re-energized to start anew again.
I hope that wherever you are on your own personal journeys, you can step away from your worries long enough to feel the serenity that exists outside your door and inside yourself. Why not start with these top five posts for the week?
