Pause …and breathe in green, Cherry trees and magnolias, evidence of spring!
Do you look forward to warmer greener days like I do?
The aromas of new life are emerging and moods begin to lift giving inspiration to look good, feel fresh and lively. Just immersing oneself in nature strolling quietly in the spring sunshine amongst natures’ ready pharmacy often awakens past memories of carefree joy. When in a relaxed mood the body finds an inner calmness, a great antidote to stress. Even the smell of freshly cut grass can awaken sweet past childhood memories of fun and laughter. Ever noticed how children love space especially in Mother nature? They run around wildly, with no worries loving everything that surrounds them, noticing the little things like a fallen branch, or stopping to pick up a bright yellow dandelion head, or pausing to hear a bird in full song on a nearby branch of a tree. They no longer have a need for material stimulus or future expectations. You can see how free and content they are when you look into their excited eyes. Children are good at letting go and loving each moment as though it’s their very first experience.
So take yourself to a beautiful place in nature. Pretend to be a child again!!
Being alone and quiet is a great way to find feelings of freedom. The hum drum of noise whether it is cars, people or television can be lost and forgotten –at least for a while.. Time out is essential for creating space in our minds. Hidden and new inspirational ideas creep into awareness more easily, sometimes answers to a difficult problem or perhaps an amazing new idea may spring to mind.
If we allow ourselves to breathe in the sweet spring scent and notice the sight of new seedlings popping out the ground it reminds us of the earth’s potential to provide boundless new growth. Beautiful plants flowers and trees flourish without effort. The natural rhythms cycles and seasons of Nature can so easily be taken for granted. The combination of the sun giving warmth, the light of day giving energy, the water from rainfall giving moisture for germination and hence potential for rebirth. This combination is essential for the life of any living organism. Including us!!
However we can survive with much less, but do we want to just survive? Or, do you want to live with high energy fantastic health, true love and happiness and thrive?
I believe we all want one thing… to live with a smile on our face and be truly happy”!
