Remember when the world seems full of misery there is one place you can go to find some peace. For me it’s nature.
Sometimes just stepping outside is good. Even just opening a door or window to smell the air helps me find that peace.
The air no matter the weather helps me breathe. It smells different before it rains. Like the promise of something new. I love the crisp way the air smells just before it snows.
Here in Vegas just at the foot of the mountains, we get that smell without getting the snow. It usually remains in the mountains. We get the best of both worlds. We can be safe in the desert climate or we can go up to the mountains if we want to play in the snow. Me? I prefer to look at it from a distance. I like not having to don heavy winter clothing to keep warm much of the winter, but I digress.
Nature brings me peace. However, I can also find nature sounds, photos, films, etc that help me when I cannot get outside. And I have my memories and imagination. So, peace is really within me whenever I choose to look for it.
Before I had ever been on a cruise, I could imagine lying on a deck with my future husband, soaking up the sun, while Caribbean music played, people laughing and dancing around us. I was spot on.
In these unusual times, what do you do to find your peace?
P.S. I, also, read.
Love, Peace and Light! Rita
