Rejuvenation Anyone?

Redwoods

I know where I am even before I open my eyes. I hear the rustling of the leaves above my head. I open my eyes and not only see but feel the sun illuminating the tent causing the inside walls to look like the golden shade of honey. There is a certain anticipation as I crawl out from underneath the covers and make my way to the zippered door. What beauty awaits I wonder? The cool air rushes in the through the opening as my eyes adjust to the light. The sun peeks through the needle-like leaves, there is the scent of campfire and coffee in the air, blue-jays screech overhead as the breeze gently blows through the red-barked trees. As I sit in my comfy chair by the campfire, I close my eyes allowing my senses to take in every sound, smell, and feeling. I silently thank God for his magnificent creation. I feel totally at peace. My soul rejuvenates. When is the last time you felt totally at peace? What brings you to the place of rejuvenation? For me, it is camping in the redwood forest, walking beside a waterfall, or sitting on the seashore. Nature is therapy for the soul. God gave us nature for us to enjoy, to fill our senses and clear our minds. If you feel overwhelmed, frustrated, and your mind feels confused, go take a walk somewhere in nature. Go by yourself or with someone you love. Be still and close your eyes. Clear your mind, listen to the beating of your heart and feel your slow rhythmic breaths as you breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Allow the peace to wash over you like a warm shower. REJUVENATION IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL, MIND AND BODY..CHOSE TO DO IT OFTEN

In the last five years, I left a profession I was in for over 20 years, I moved to a new city, re-married, went back to school to discover a new profession, and became a grandma for the first time. I also am pursuing my passion for writing. I am writing a children's picture book and I started my first blog ever. For years I was afraid of change but I now I embrace it
