I found my zen today
I haven’t felt this relaxed in a long time. I had even lost my desire to draw which had been very therapeutic in previous month.
But the warm weather & sunshine is back in Sydney. I brought myself a new outdoor lounge for Xmas, I’ve used it a little, but today I was able to lay out on it & soak up some sun.
Ive done some sudoku puzzles, had a beer & been totally chilled out.
I can’t remember I time I felt so relaxed. The anxiety isn’t entirely gone, but it’s dulled today. I think the happy outdoors sounds are drowning it out.
I can hear happy kids playing in the distance, the insects are humming, there’s a gentle, cool breeze blowing & I've been out here for hours now.
I just found myself staring at the pine tree in the garden, deciphering all the colours in the pine needles, branches, trunk & I am suddenly inspired to go grab my sketch book & oil pastels & capture it.
so nice to have some happiness back, I hope it sticks around & gets me through my work day tomorrow 😎
Your post is so inspiring and heartwarming...I am so happy for you today..and hoping that your relaxed feeling will stay with you forever..
I agree about sitting outdoors in the sunshine..I have always believed that nature has a bigger part then we all realise in its healing powers..
So happy for you..
