Feet in the Grass

photoWe all have them, you’re not alone.  Some days are just… BLAH.  It’s not that the day itself was bad, it’s not that anything really went wrong, it’s just that sometimes our energy is zapped up by those who may need it more than we do.  The fact that we can help these people in that way, well, not everybody can do it.  When days like this presents itself to you, after the depletion, it’s time to gather yourself and find your tranquil paradise.

Several deep breaths in a moment between hecticness (I think I just made up my own word?) works in a pinch, but sometimes we need much more than breath… we need to ground ourselves.  Go outside, put your bare feet in the grass, close your eyes, and feel the earth beneath your feet.  Take a deep breath, exhale… open your eyes, look around with a new perspective and look for a small joy that brings a sense of wonderment.  Have you ever noticed that flower growing over there?  Do you hear the bird chirping in a nearby tree?  The clouds look so white…

There you go.  You feel it?  Your calm and your energy filling up your heart, your mind and your soul.  ❤
