Lost and Found

Who knew the outdoors could be the elixir of life? I lose myself whenever I am cast into a bund of forest area. Yet I find myself again, but much more gathered and with a deeper sense of mental clarity. Mother Nature’s free gift is right in our backyards and most of the time we choose to deny her for an urban, concrete jungle.

Endlessly walking and allowing thoughts to freely flow are two common results of being cast into the outdoors. The pace and flow of nature treks can be linear and progressive. The momentum of it all is encouraging and energetic as one continues to discover. Neat spots and views can be accredited to serendipity as one may not have known where to look. The experiences of a hike may be hard to match when there is so much to be offered.

The east or west path you say? It really will not matter, Mother Nature will take you where you need to be. No matter if you have a lot or very little on your mind, the outdoors is rich in clarity and inspiration. Nature is free for all to indulge, and to those who partake are rewarded with lavish insight and experiences.

Being enthralled with all of life is another enticing element to consider. Intertwining personal space with wildlife, plants  and celestial presentations certainly makes the outdoors so worthwhile. Our place within the world is put in perspective when we reside outside. It may feel as if nature mirrors back to us the insight that we yearn for. Mother Nature offers it all and then some.

Nature can open you up, and carve out all of the crevices of your thoughts. Being outside is always a breath of fresh air (figuratively and literally). The outdoor prompts many adventures along with the opportunity to always discover. Retreat to the outdoors whenever you feel lost, and find yourself found upon ending your journey.
