This gorgeous sodden, red and green earth reminds me to breathe deeply. Walking here allows me to be thankful for everything that comes my way and helps me work through my moments of doubt and worry.Although challenging, these moments allow me to grow and I don’t know why, but I find comfort in these steady, ever-reaching bodies.I once read about a Japanese form of therapy called Shinrin-Yoku, which translates to “forest bathing”. Believe it or not, there are actually Shinrin-Yoku classes where participants are encouraged to leave all technology behind, and engage their five senses while walking through the forest. This concept of forest therapy is absolutely wonderful! When doing our best to overcome small to substantial moments of adversity, it is important to remind ourselves of the healing powers that nature possesses. When we walk through a forest, we are reminded that we are no different from the creatures we come across, whether trudging at our feet or soaring above our heads, we all have a purpose.In this ever expanding urban world of ours, we need to take the time to soften our thoughts. To manifest our happiest moments as well as the difficult ones, to remind ourselves that really in times of even extreme calamity, our light shines brightest in the darkest of nights. Today, and everyday, know that you are so so loved.
