Everyone goes outside on a sunny day, takes walks along the river or through the forest. But have you ever taken the time to go sit in the forest by yourself on a rainy day?
Have you ever taken the time to turn off your phone and put away your book in order to just sit and be?
Have you ever started to listen to the raindrops falling on the roof of leaves above you and on the stones and dirt around you?
Were you ever a bit scared at first from all the sounds you couldn’t quite understand, and have you ever come to the conclusion that you are safe among all these living things around you?
Have you ever hesitated before shooing away a moth and realised that it just wanted to sit down next to you and keep you company for a little while?
Have you ever watched the mountains on the horizon slowly disappear in the creeping darkness and let the light breeze play with your hair?
Have you ever decided to leave, just before it got too dark to find your way back, not because you were afraid, but because you no longer wanted to disturb the nocturnal peace of that special place?
Have you ever taken a truly fulfilling breath before walking home with a light feeling of bliss in your heart?
