“If we surrenderedto earth’s intelligencewe could rise up rooted, like trees.”—Rainer Maria Rilke, Rilke’s Book of Hours: Love Poems to God
This month has been non stop and there has been some unexpected tension, stress and a huge sense of overwhelm.
With Tree top walk ways, towering evergreens, totem poles, multiple suspension bridges and this exquisite sense of wonder it was such needed.
Today I decided to go up to Capilano Suspension Bridge. The air was cool, but the sun was shining. It was the perfect day to go and view the untouched beauty of the forest.
Sometimes life gets to be a lot. I live this fast- paced, ever so changing, always something happening type of lifestyle & I LOVE it. That being said sometimes I need a break (which doesn't happen as much as it should).
When I feel like this, one of my favourite things is to hang out in nature. The fresh air, the cool breeze, the sense of wonder and endless possibility. It has always been my escape from reality.
Where is your favourite place to explore? What do you do to destress?
