Take the time to retreat from your day - to - day routine, and make a genuine effort
to reconnect with yourself and your natural surroundings.
Something I read this early morning.
I thought this was what I was doing
and seems not so.
Here it is November, leaves cover the ground, wind blowing and a chill in the air.
A year that when I look back
I think went faster then any in my lifetime.
A year where so much has happened to me and in this family
and I almost feel like I lost myself somewhere along the line.
Physically feeling good at the moment, a smile on my face,
feeling at peace and yet
I have much to do
regarding body, mind and spirit.
For some reason in my lifetime I thought this would stop
eventually and I would say to myself "you have arrived."
It is quite evident to me in these last years
I have not arrived
and wonder does anyone ever arrive?
There are continual lessons to learn.
Remember, wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit
~~ Edward Abbey~~
In order to understand this world, one has to turn away from it on occasion
Seeking a quiet day and then some more quiet days
to quiet the mind
and to stop trying to understand so much.
My heart tells me to do the best I can, stop the questioning, just accept
and nothing stays the same anyway and is always changing
