"Mother Nature has the power to please, to comfort, to calm and to nature one's soul"
Anthony Douglas Williams
This is something I need to take to heart and remind myself of every day. There are always moments when, even the things I enjoy and love to do, leave me feeling a little overwhelmed. I feel a bit like Winnie the Pooh, in need of a honey sandwich which I might even take to my bed...the ultimate comfort food!
Instead of filling my sheets with crumbs I have taken to the garden, not specifically for gardening you understand, but to feel the green under my feet and to enjoy the shade, the flowers, the quiet.
I have put on my sneakers and taken to the streets to enjoy the head space and the neighbourhood fruits and flowers.
I have taken an early moment to enjoy the golden light of sunrise.
I have stepped away from the couch or the kitchen to take in the sunset.
I have filled my back table with little pots of greenery and there are distinctly green corners in my house too...
I still feel a little swamped but, at least I am enjoying the view and the company of Mother Nature!
Do you have somewhere you retreat to?
