*I was recently asked to respond to the prompt “What nature taught you”. I thought I would share my tid-bit in response*
Nature has taught me the necessity of reboots. Recharges. Restarts.
Life has a funny way of locking our perspectives into a tunnel-vision mindset. Hyper-focused on the next day, the next stressor, the next thing to worry about. Along the way, we can get stuck in the quicksand of this mentality.
Step into nature, and it is the most consistently nurturing teacher. She’s always there, compassionately cultivating the changing of seasons. The waxing and waning of the weather, the flowers, the leaves dancing in the trees.
Reboots are vital to our well-being, just as the changing of seasons is necessary for the health of the natural world.
Recharging encourages rest.
Restarts encourage moments to pause and take a step back.
So, step into nature often, friends. She’s there to remind us of our humanness and the vitality that accompanies reboots and recharging.
