nature and the outdoors are a natural experience of being in the present, of being at peace
nature revitalizes, energizes
nature frees and awakens
in nature we are in the moment
enjoy the warming sun, blue sky, gray sky, purple sky, green lushness, bird song, a breeze, a muted fog morning, glistening trees of ice cover, brilliant cloudy sky, full bright moon, a tumbling brook of water, crisp autumn air, warm rain drops, splashing through a puddle, rattling dancing leaves, smell the apple blossoms, feel the cool water of the lake on your toes, sit on a rock throne…
i needed some time away. i was being run by this commitment and this activity, responsibility after responsibility seemed to have a hold of my life and i didn’t have time for myself.
everything that i was doing, everything that seemed to have taken over my life are all things that i have chosen, they are (maybe not as much as when i first began) important to me. but, all of them combined overtook my life that i wasn’t living life, life was living me.
my energy was draining and i wasn’t able to give myself what i needed to keep my energy where i needed it to be and where i wanted it to be. i wasn’t doing activities that were for me; my body, mind and spirit. i wasn’t giving what i wanted to give to what i was doing. i needed to give me myself and rejuvenate my energy.
i needed to get away so that i could re-connect to myself. get in touch with what i want, and what’s important to me. and then to sit still and let my mind quiet.
one day. one day to connect to myself, quiet my mind, slow down, and let the sounds of nature rejuvenate my energy. let nature surround me with the flow of life. energy flowing back into my life. excitement and enthusiasm for the life i want to create flowing in my thoughts again.
i love and enjoy as much time as possible to give to myself in this way and many other smaller and bigger ways. it’s amazing what we can give to ourselves and do for our wellbeing in a small amount of time.
we all need to care for and love ourselves. we need to be able to rejuvenate and keep our energy high. when we care for ourselves, we give to ourselves, and we give to others in our lives fully.
how do you give to yourself? what keeps your energy high? how do you rejuvenate?
take time and give to yourself. give to yourself in the small ways and give to yourself in the big ways. if you need to take time away because you have given and taken too much energy from yourself, do that. you will return with energy, excitement and enthusiasm to live and create life, being a part of all that you choose with happiness and gratitude.
who are you connected to? what are you connected to?
I like to be connected to myself. I like to be connected to my inner being, and being connected to my inner wisdom. I like to be aware of what I want and what is most important to me.
I like to be connected to those I love and are most important to me. I like to share and experience life with them. I like to enjoy deep rich conversations and new experiences with those I love.
I like to be connected to nature. I like to feel the flow of the water, I like to feel Earth’s energy flow up through me from the ground. I like to enjoy the awe and wonder of all the beauty that nature is.
I like to be connected to the Universe God. I like to be connected to all that is. I like to feel love, joy, gratitude, abundance and freedom!
I like to be connected to others. I like to learn, grow and expand from others. I like to empower and encourage others to live their truth. I like to be curious and connect with many unique people and see their authentic beauty in their being and doing.
