Mother Nature always brings me back down to Earth. We are so bombarded with information everyday. Thoughts can become cloudy. I find myself ignoring the messages from my body and only acknowledging the requests of my mind. Our wants override our needs. We are molded to believe we need the latest this and that. We are told we need these things or we will be left behind.
If you were told to bring 5 objects to a new world to live on an island just discovered, the first thing you would grab probably wouldn't be your phone. I would bring pieces of me, personal objects, memories of home. Notebooks and sketchbooks. Scale back what you think you need, that is actually a want and consider what you really need.
Try to return to your roots and remember what's really important. Remember why you started and try not to go off on the stray path. Don't get lost in the dust of the desert. Journey into the core of you. I experience so much in a day. I am always swiping, scrolling, reading, listening. We have so much information coming at us everyday that it is down to us to know when to rest. Separate yourself from the noise. Reflect on what you already have and don't be tricked by the 'wants' in your life. Turn off the radio, switch off your phone. Silence the noise and tune into you.
Be mindful everyday, even if it's for just one minute. Rest and B R E A T H E. If you are reading this, please comment below on how you are mindful and what you are grateful for. Practice two mindful moments with me this month. For now enjoy Mother Nature at her finest..... mindfulness and meditation posts due soon 🙏🏽
