These days, being confined at home, I like to take myself on a walk in the woods.
I don’t do it every day, because since it’s winter time we can get some gosh-awful weather. Definitely the worst is the combined winds + rain. Which for me cancels any thoughts of going out.
I have barely mentioned anything regarding my health issues, other than, I need to take some time off to care for myself… I don’t think I’m ready to write about it yet, but basically what I have is chronic. I am learning to live with it, and do the best I can whilst dealing with that. It sure hasn’t been easy but I’m an optimistic, and grateful person.
So, one of the most important thing in my daily life is to walk. Going into the woods gives me such good energy, it recharges me, connects me to the simple enjoyable things, and the importance of life. It also inspires me to look forward no matter what.
Where we live it’s such a beautiful and magical place. We have the woods nearby, and a lake, and also a river down… we get to see people riding horses. It’s very French as well, in the sense that it’s a foodie town, so you can find all the necessary ingredients for cooking amazing dishes. The Farmer’s & Flowers market is stunning, definitely worth going out on a Saturday morning for.
My day-to-day life is actually pretty peaceful, and lovely. I romanticize it a lot, which is easy because the surroundings are quite poetic, and that’s why I absolutely hate getting out of my bubble. I get so much anxiety whenever I have to go to Paris, even though it’s like super close and I’m a Parisian-born. Being here feels like we’re away from that madness, it’s delightful 💗
I hate winter, so whenever it’s sunny out, you best believe I’m gonna be out as well. Gotta soak that vitamin D as much as possible in this dark land. I went there with my best friend, who was visiting from Switzerland. Gosh I always miss her so much, I have the best talks & hangouts with her; you don’t need a therapist when you have an amazing bestie.
The palace was so pretty that day, I’ve been here a million times, but never with this type of weather. I was definitely enchanted. The winds were ruthless though, which is why we didn’t go too far out, it was freezing. 💗
The best view is from up above… When I’m not up in the air, I miss the feeling of seeings things higher than the clouds can. I like looking down at the earth, our beautiful little planet it is… so tiny actually. And I’m even tinier, a dust really. But I get to experience so many different places, and emotions. How can that be nothing in the face of infinity, when my thoughts feel infinite already. I don’t understand what I’m made of really, but I do believe the saying that it’s stardust. I definitely feel the energy of a sun in place of my heart, especially when I’m not touching the ground.
