Life is supposed to be fun

Finding a Peaceful Place

on October 27, 2015

This morning I woke up feeling good. I felt renewed and excited about what the day would bring. I’ve been in a funk that last few days and I was tired of feeling blah. So last night as I lay day for bed I thought, “What do I like to do?” Camping came to mind. Then I thought, “Why do I like it?” Then my mind really started racing! “I like the feeling of being outside. I like the feeling of wide open space. I like the beauty of nature. I like the way it smells and sounds. I like the smell of fall and the beautiful colors on all the trees. I like the feeling of the crisp cool air. I like bundling up in sweaters. I like the feeling of freedom I feel when I camp. I get to choose what I do with my time. I like the people I go camping with. I like being in this nice easy environment where we are all relaxed and able to enjoy each other. I like sitting around campfires and enjoying stories. I like roasting marshmallows and eating s’mores. And at the end of the night I like staring up at the stars and feeling the vastness of the universe….” And so my mind continued on, feeling wonderful as I drifting off into a peaceful sleep. And somewhere, as I slept, my attitude of my life was changing, allowing me to wake up feeling wonderful and refresh, almost as if I had just actually gone camping. It’s amazing what the mind can do and how these little things can change our view on life.
