Emotional level: 7
Mental level: 8
TODAY I LEARNED: You have a 1 in 200 chance of being related to Genghis Khan, (the Khagan of the Mongol Empire).
I overloaded yesterday. I tried putting too much work into something on very little sleep. All of the stress resulted in a panic attack of sorts and I was ready to say screw everything…but I didn’t. After the storm seemed to pass, I sat on our couch in the living room with my computer in my lap. I couldn’t find the gumption to write ANYTHING. Mentally and emotionally, I was exhausted beyond belief. I needed something to fix it. Sleep would have to wait. I needed a de-stressing something another to help me get to another day. So, instead of going through my normal “depression routine”, I decided to do something different. I went to nature.
We packed some stuff up and just drove right to the green grass, flowing rivers, and tall trees. There’s something about nature that opens your senses. It makes you realize what you’re doing wrong and what you should be doing. The answers, believe it or not, are there in those trickling waters. They’re deep within the trees’ roots, buried beneath the dirt, just waiting for you to see them. As my hand touched the cold river water, it was like my whole body could feel the difference. I put my phone away, found a nice rock to sit on by the river and gently closed my eyes.
The answers don’t come to you in the form of voices or booming revelations. They come with the quiet and the peace. Through gentle thoughts, images, vibrations, and feelings. You start to understand, little by little, what the Earth and your higher power are trying to tell you. I needed to get out of my own head, and that’s exactly what I did. I was able to come back to reality. I could see where I went wrong, even if it was something simple. Sometimes we don’t see what’s right in front of us. I’m thankful we live by such a wonderful park. What was supposed to be 20 minutes, lasted almost two hours and boy was it needed. Everyone have an amazing day!
