It’s amazing to me how a brief respite from one’s routine can be completely energizing!
This weekend my little family of three took a drive to see the Orosi Valley. With dear friends who posted their glorious pictures of their time there more than six months ago, I’ve been yearning to see it for myself and finally, we made it happen. So, we woke up our moody teenager early, packed ourselves in the car, and off we went!
As we wove our way out of the city and into the mountains, I felt my whole body exhale. Yesssssssss….. Nature…
I’ve been a country mouse most of my life. Nature is my church. It is where I come back to myself. It is where I commune with God. It is where I remember what matters. Nature feels like home to me.
We spent less than two hours exploring the beauty of the valley, but in that time I felt more whole.
What makes you feel whole? What nurtures your spirit and allows you to live in celebration of life?
Whatever that is, do more of it.
The world needs whole, healthy, celebratory people. Your gift to yourself becomes your gift to the people around you.
