While I lived the big city life for years, I kept telling myself: tomorrow I will go running through the forest somewhere or: next weekend I will take the kids hiking or: next week I need to save some time for reconnecting with nature. And with myself. And breathe deeply.
But the thing is: I barely managed to do all of this. For decades I fully depended on concrete and asphalt. Because I may have been too lazy, because there was always something more important to do in the city jungle, because of distractions, work, social obligations, because it was such an organizational effort to come up with a plan and get everyone in the car until you leave the big city lights behind you. All these excuses.
I got miserable. I needed to leave my comfort zone, try something new. And so we went. Travelled. Paused.
And here I am. In the middle of the wilderness. No better things to do out here than being out here. Every day. Every type of weather.
I still go to work every day. But after work I go here. Nature. And that feels so good. And just right.
For how long? I don’t know.
But for the moment I can say that I’m gaining strengths; intellectually, physically, emotionally. I am much more balanced. And: Watching my kids turn into outdoor fanatics right now is priceless. Im thankful for that experience.
I’m sure you are doing a much better job than I ever did in managing your inner balance, recharging your batteries on a constant base, reconnecting with nature and setting your priorities right.
However, if that by surprise is NOT the case and you are just a chaotic-city-buzz-addict as I have always been: the weekend is within eyeshot. Maybe it’s time to try something new? And go for an outdoor adventure? Whether it’s the playground around the block, suburbia’s parks or the deep woods in the countryside: I’m sure it’s gonna be so worth it.
