I’ve had lots of time lately to Sit Outside. It’s been so nice. My office at work doesn’t have windows to see the outside world. I can be in there for hours at a time and not see the outside. It’s really nice to just sit outside. There’s something about it.
It helps me to connect with the stillness and the present. I make myself so busy sometimes that I just need to make time to reconnect with myself. Sitting outside – at least for me – creates the space to just be. I need to plan those times. I need times of stillness and quiet – and at night – with the sound of whatever animals are around, I can just be still. I can be present. I can just sit and listen and reconnect. As soon as I put away the laptop, I’m going to get back to stillness and quiet. It’s nice.
I hope that you have some reconnecting time with yourself – today. If it’s sitting outside – do that. Whatever it is, I hope you get to spend some time doing so.
