Please watch the video below! I hope it gives you a few minutes of calm!
In a world where almost everything I do is on a scale of 10 for the intense meter…this week is likely off the charts! Intensity is in my DNA! I’ve written about how intense a favorite piece of music is to me when I listen to it. I get sucked into the music with such intensity that before I know it, I am overcome with emotion! When I create anything from scratch, I get so intensely involved in the process and results, I don’t even think about eating or drinking! Literally everything in my life is lived or practiced with so much intensity that it should really come as no surprise that these past few weeks have been disturbingly intense for me!
It is so important we all stay informed during this pandemic and I have spent many an hour in front of my TV glued to the constant updates. Given my history of intensity this can be a bit overwhelming! It’s tough to walk away from each hour of cable news because so much changes. I feel such intense emotion and the anger, sadness and disgust is so deep and profound, I realized today that a bit of time away, was a good idea!
Many years ago we worked so hard, with most of the work manual, to groom miles of trails on our land. In the winter we use the trails as a snow shoe track and today with the sun shining I strapped on the shoes and headed out. It didn’t take long before the feeling outside in the sun and freshness, made me feel so much better! I made a video of that hike in the hopes that you could experience some of the intensity of landscape and warmth from the sparkling rays! I put a really awesome (in my opinion) track underneath that visual so the experience could be as intense as possible. Turn up the music as loud as you feel comfortable with and I hope you enjoy the hike with me!
I’m curious what you do, for your escape from the reality of your day! I wonder if you can get lost in a moment so intensely that you aren’t as aware of your surroundings! What is it that you do? Share it in the comments! If you have a suggestion, share that as well! It would be great if you are are able to find a moment of calm with this video, let me know! No matter what you do, do this! Stay well…and stay healthy and keep those around your healthy! When things get to be too intense, make sure you find something to provide you with the most positive moments that nurture your soul! We can do this!!
