When I was out camping this weeknd and walking through some woodlands I noticed this tree, the sun was shining on it and it felt like it was calling me (weird I know), but when I got closer I felt some sort of connection, because if you look at all the other trees surrounding it they are straight and this one was twisting and winding.
It got me thinking that no matter what life throws at us we can still stand tall and that it is ok to be different.
We was out walking for a good few hours and was so peaceful and relaxing that I was able to forget all the hustle and bustle of the world for a weekend, and was able to enjoy the company I was with, having a laugh and been able to feel free.
Even though my back was killing me with the amount of walking I had done, it didnt matter because I felt relaxed and at peace, calmer, more in tune with myself, more so that weekend than I had for a long time.
I am hoping to be able to go back to this place at some point and enjoy the peace again, to enjoy the company I am with, and to also enjoy the calmness of my thoughts.
Everytime I go our to an open space whether that be woodlands, the beach, a field I feel at peace with myself I dont have to walk round these places just sat or stood depending on how my back can deal with it and on how I am feeling I can stay there for hours, just listening and enjoying the calmness round me.
When I am at my calmest I will say hello to people who walk by but it will only be a polite hello because they have said hello first, and they will carry on their way and everything is at peace again, until I have to move again to go home or back to my car or the campervan.
