To have a truly balanced life you might find you need some spiritual time.
I love taking a break from everyday routine, retreating to the bush, reminding myself what is truly important.
Family, friends, health, community, air, food and water – and having a positive impact on those around me.
What does spirituality mean to you?
Rather than a wordy blog post today, I’ve collected some photos from my ‘spiritual retreat’ last week, a three day bush walk in the Sunshine Coast hinterland with my husband (with kids happily ensconced with gran).
Lying down, with a view of blue sky through the trees, is one of my favourite places to be!
Warning: cliches ahead …
Sometimes you need to stick your head out to live the best life possible.
Persistence is an admirable trait – but sometimes you will still run out of time or energy.
(As cranky as I was at this bush rat for so quietly destroying my expensive pack overnight, I did feel a little sorry that after all his hard work he couldn’t penetrate the plastic container of food.)
You’ll reach your goals sooner if you know what they are, but sometimes it’s more fun to take the less direct route.
It’s only from the valley that the mountain seems impossibly high.
Wonderful things can happen when we work with nature.
Ask for support, from family, friends, professionals – but be aware of their needs too.
Enjoy the still moments after the rush.
Together we are stronger than alone.
Enjoy a helping hand from those who have been there before you.
I’d love to hear what you do spiritually, just comment below! You can even get me back with some cliches of your own.
