As we sat in our living room feeling mentally and physically drained, we longed to be out in nature. If we could have closed our eyes, said a magic word and appeared anywhere in the world, it would have been a place we have yet to visit, a place that has long been one of our dreams – The Pacific Northwest. The thought of breathing in its majestic landscape, with its towering mountains, breathtakingly blue waters and lush green forests fills us with wonder and awe.
At that moment, we knew hopping on a plane and travelling 5,000 miles was not an option due to significant lack of time and money, so we quickly got creative… Mac has an imagination that would make any four year old proud, so it wasn’t long before ‘Wandering’ started to flow.
Have you ever needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to a place that makes you slow down, breathe in and take time to focus on nourishing the soul? We sure have! For us, when we think about being refreshed, we imagine basking in the serenity of a timeless landscape, unaffected by things like the latest craze, trends and celebrities. It forces us to stop and makes us think about something far bigger than our own lives and all of the temporary, tangible things that fight for our attention daily.
So, today, right now, wherever you are, take a moment. Breathe in. Stop. Reflect. Have you taken a break recently? When was the last time you wandered into a beautiful place away from the hustle and bustle of life? When was the last time you thought about the condition of your soul? How are you feeding your spirit? We encourage you to do something, go somewhere, take some time and be refreshed.
