I felt stressed the last couple of weeks. Work has been a major contributor to that, but I also credit the extreme cold. It meant a lot of time inside, shielded from the sun. When the temperatures rose to the 40s this weekend (yay, heatwave!), I heard the call of the forest and needed to get out. I knew it was time when my family was getting on my last nerve. Thus, I retreated into the woods. I walked down the trail, admiring the mingling deer and snowmobile tracks. I delighted in the songbirds joyfully welcoming the sun through the clouds.
I felt that I could breathe.
True to my Sagittarian sign, I’m frequently beset by wanderlust. I crave exploration and adventure, and simply trudging around the forest on my own can satisfy that. I slipped off the trail and just stood, staring up at the canopy of the arboreal cathedral. I felt so free and rejuvenated.
With the forest fresh in my heart, I’m ready for another week.
