It’s a beautiful day today, birds are singing outside my windows, and everything’s come to life. I love that burst in the spring and summer, where everything blooms, one after another. The noises are more peaceful, and there isn’t really silence, and that’s okay, it’s a good kind of noise.
I’ve been trying to get out for walks lately. I think I’m going to try to get out some today. I’m always hesitant to go out alone, though I generally find I enjoy it when I do. My mind drifts and wanders, and it’s a very different experience than walking with others. I suppose that’s part of what scares me too, I’m so checked out and in my own little world that I’m both hyper-aware and unaware of what’s going on around me.
Getting out in nature is good for me. I used to be outside all the time, I miss that. It’s calm and peaceful, and there’s a hope that can’t be quantified. I like feeling free to explore, not boxed in. I’m struggling with that some today. Feeling like all my responsibilities are holding me back, when I really just want to be free.
Even in the warmer weather, I still have a cup of hot tea, and I’m thankful for this morning and this moment, a time to take a rest and breathe before fully starting my day.
Thank you also for being here, and for reading along on my journey.
