On this warm and sunny end of September day I trekked through the woods. Truly I didn’t want to walk today. Not sure why? It is a beautiful day. The leaves are changing colors and the temperature is perfect. My mind kept putting it off but my heart quietly and silently hoped that I would head outdoors. Eventually, my heart won and I walked on the path, across the marsh and into the forest. My soul and my heart are happy as are my lungs and muscles. I never regret a walk in the woods.
Often times my soul knows what it wants to do, whether it’s a walk in the woods or writing an article. My “to do” list real or imagined calls out to me much louder than the activities I love most. Too many times they are pushed aside. My soul wants to trek through this life and yet I keep it locked inside never able to reach its potential. Today let your “soul trek” a bit. Your whole self will benefit from a soul that is released and able to trek on this path of life.
Love, “with a heart of peace”,
