Sometimes you just have to unplug. That’s what I did over the weekend. I didn’t even turn on my computer. I sat outside in the sunshine and enjoyed the warmer weather. It felt wonderful to just be in the moment as May’s warmth made me smile and the fresh air cleared away the cobwebs.
Have you ever just done that? Unplugged and relaxed? Enjoyed nature’s presence? I think we all need a time to unplug from life school. Don’t you?
Because life school never ends and even though we are learning much from the human experience, at times, it can feel overwhelming. That’s when some peace and quiet are necessary and a return to nature is helpful. I am the girl who takes her coffee outside every morning to experience nature. I am also the girl who likes to stargaze at night. I find that when I have even a few minutes in the quiet of nature, I feel more alive and centered. There’s something to be said about getting back to basics, don’t you think?
This is the time in our lives when unplugging is even more necessary since we can be bombarded by newscasts, scary information and the fears of the Virus and the subsequent information provided can wreak havoc on one’s mental and emotional well-being. Staying informed is a good choice, but so is protecting yourself from an overload of negativity and fear. Strike a gentle balance between them when you can.
For nothing is certain these days and change is inevitable. We are not promised tomorrow. We only have today and precisely this moment in time to count on. So do your best. Be kind. Protect yourself and your loved ones, and remember to keep fear at bay. Settle into the new information piece by piece and continue on your divine path.
