I saw a nice text today and it said:
“Sometimes I feel like just shutting my cell phone off, sell my car, move to a cabin in the woods and live off the land”
How beautiful that sounds. It would feel really nice to have a cabin in the middle of nowhere, up in the mountains, a place to retreat to every now and then. To disconnect from the madness we call life.
Imagine sitting outside the cabin in the woods an early morning, with a freshly Mae coffee in your hand, just listening to the quietness around you. And if you pay attention and listen carefully, and start to tune in to the surroundings, you will hear the nature speak to you. Not only the birds, but also the trees and bushes. The breeze making its way through the trees, making that soothing and relaxing sound, pay close attention and you will hear the leaves rattling slightly and the branches making a soft creaking sound by its movements.
Just sit there, close your eyes, feeling the heat from the coffee cup in your hands, making them warm, the breeze is slightly brushing over your face, making you feel slightly chilly. But you don’t really care, because you feel so good sitting there, you take a deep liberating breath, and just feel all stress leaving your body as you breathe.
You slowly begin opening your eyes and start to see all the beauty that surrounds you. You see that little bird busying away building its nest, making it ready for his new family. They don’t seem to have anymore ids in their lives. It’s just seems so simple, I like simple. They thrive on their survival instincts, catching the food they need, and building their nests, bringing up their new family to see their chicks grow and eventually fly away leaving the nest, and the circle starts all over again. How beautiful!
While we humans put a lot of pressure on ourselves, wanting more and more. Is it all really worth it?! I often wonder. To work ourselves sick, by stressing and worrying, wanting “more things”?! I think I have mentioned this a few times in my posts, but it never hurt to say it again as a reminder; don’t forget to stop and smell the roses, just for a moment. Take a break, because you owe it to yourself, you deserve to take a moment just for you! Even if it’s just for five minutes, but these five minutes can really make a difference, you won’t regret it!!
Be good to yourself!
