The Healing Power of Nature
When you feel overextended or have lost a sense of yourself, where do you turn? A few weeks ago I had one of those times. I was tired from balancing the demands of being a mom, wife, friend, teacher, and therapist. I had nothing left to give and was tapped out. I know, from experience, that these feelings are a signal from my soul not to be ignored. I have burnt out before and am committed not to end up there again. Grateful to have some time to myself, I took the opportunity to head to the trails in the Colorado foothills and to tend to my weariness with a day of silence and nature.
“My take home message, embrace confusion, let yourself be disoriented; sometimes this is the only way to find your inner compass.”
