🌿Our #instalive chat is on my timeline🌿 I recently spent a year living in a tiny little cabin in the mountains. Honestly, I often times get teary, because I miss it so dearly. You see, nature has always had a tender spot in my heart, but living 24/7 wrapped in the arms of Mother Nature was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. From the sound of the babbling creek running through the front yard, to the majestic mountainside the back of the cabin nestled into, and the sights-sounds-smells of nature all around me, I fell so deeply in-love with Mother Earth during my time there. She’s the greatest healer for me and the healing balm that soothes my soul. Since moving from my little cabin in the woods, I’ve found ways to stay connected with Mother Nature wherever I go. Connecting with her brings me so much peace, healing, stillness, grounding, and rejuvenation. I find her in the whisper of the wind, the sound of rushing waters, the rocks and dirt beneath my feet, the sweet fragrance of flowers and trees, and in the starry heavens. The most beautiful part of it is, she’s available to all of us and is yearning to fill us with her love. When I go on walks with my dogs, I’ve also been able to find hidden gems all around my new home: a nature garden, a dry creek, and a quiet grotto at a nearby church. I also love being active outdoors, like going on hikes, snowshoeing or skiing, and star gazing- just to name a few. Staying connected to Mother Nature is easy by finding ways to enjoy time in nature!❤️🌿🌎 . . . . Reconnect with nature and feel the the love of our Mother Earth to enrich and rejuvenate your life.🌿🌎 #RSJproject #mothernature #nature #love #motherearth 📷: @bradenkuhlman
