Saturday was, in my eyes, a perfect summer day. The sky was the just right shade of blue with white fluffy cotton ball clouds. The temps in the upper 80's but low humidity and an awesome breeze all day long.,...ahhhhh!
I ATE IT UP! I inhaled it, absorbed it & embraced it to the very end. I relaxed outside with a book, soaking up the sun. Both did wonders for my heart and mind. Later took a walk on one of my favorite trails with my 16 y/o son. He jogged. I walked, just taking in the sights & sounds...the birds singing, the breeze blowing through the trees, the water running over the rocks down the little creek...just feeling it...thinking. Then more reading outside in the evening with the breeze until the skeeters came to feast on me, lol.
These last couple weeks have been draining (emotionally with the personal stuff) & stressful (work). My eating has been horrible and my exercise even dropped off (again). I NEEDED yesterday so badly...to recharge...to refill my heart and soul with the good stuff.
I really have to take the time to feed my soul much more often. It doesnt take much...Im easy, lol! The sun on my face (or shoulders), the sounds of nature (birds, katydids, peepers), waves crashing, a babbling creek, a nice breeze, a healing book, beautiful scenery, long drives with windows down & music UP, family time, laughter, connecting with God...my list could go on and on. Are you feeding your soul??
So, I am recharged and ready...back on my feet...a bit sunburned...taking baby steps, but moving forward again after a brief detour...and SMILING baby! =)
