Into the forest I go...

...to lose my mind and find my soul! Even though I actually LIVE in the forest, I sometimes have to make myself go outside! I don't know if it stems from being a Louisiana native and hardly ever doing anything outside, because it was just too hot and humid, or if I just get busy doing busy work and the day gets away from me [probably just a combination of both]. But this year [2019], I am determined to go outside every single day, even if it's just for 30 minutes! I went out yesterday and it was awesome! It's just so calming and peaceful. I just sat on the ground at one point and took my shoes off. I let the coolness of the moist [I know, I just used that "M" word] leaves caress my feet and toes and it was so wonderful. I watched two Squirrels chase each other round and round a tree, I heard birds singing and the sound of dry leaves rubbing against each other, trying to make their way to the ground like the others.
I discovered tiny mushrooms
and some funky fungi [Hot Lips Puffballs]
But mostly I discovered more about myself. More realization of how really short life is and how every single thing that happens in my life is MY choice...the things that happen are not always my choice, exactly, but the way I react to them is...always has been and always will be. About this time last year a friend of mine shared this video on facebook and I have, literally, watched it 1/2 dozen times! So much truth and wisdom we have right inside of ourselves and yet, we always blame others [not necessarily people, but things, situations, weather, tight cloths...etc.,] on WHY we are in a funk! I guarantee you, if you listen to this lady...at least once [two or three times to really take it all in], your life will change...or, at least your attitude towards it!
So now it's time to figure out what's for dinner [another choice, but one I actually enjoy]!

Happy 2019!!

love and peace always ~ Kathy
