Did you ever think about how traveling can help you deal with grief or loss?  I didn’t!  If you are looking for a way to deal with grief or loss, take a listen to Memento More. How Travel Can Help Us Deal With Death and Grief with Dr. Karen Wyatt.  It is a very interesting podcast called Books and Travel by Joanna Penn.  It is good information on how traveling can help.

Enjoy!

What Can I Be Looking For?

What can I be looking for?

Through the mists of my soul

I take a walk through the fog

Wondering and waiting

For what I do not know

Stepping through the forest

The only light from the moonlight overhead

Sharing it’s mystical impression

Feeling so unreal in it’s perception

I am searching for something or someone

Not sure why or what for

But I continue to move on and glide through

Hoping beyond hope to understand

What can I be looking for?

This one by Demi is one of my faves! Just watching it gets you feeling upbeat. 😉

Raye’s video and song is the first time I have seen and heard it. I found it when surfing YouTube to find Confidence videos. Love it!

I hope you enjoy and get something from these.  If you have any you like, please share.  I always love new songs and quotes/memes to go by.  ❤

Short story

Just Be

Raina had to take a walk to get out of her mind and the things she couldn’t control.  Slipping on her flats. Wearing a skirt and blouse.  Just needing to get away.  She stepped out of the house and put one foot in front of the other.  Not paying attention to where she went.  Not seeing those she passed.  Just letting her body take her to somewhere quiet and peaceful.  Somewhere far enough from all that her mind was trying to protect her from by throwing lies at her to make her shut down.  Breathing in and out, the breeze coming off the shore washing all her thoughts away.  

Realizing she had reached the ocean a few blocks from the house, she stood there taking it all in.  The colorful sunset across the sea.  The seagulls flying overhead, hoping she might have some treats for them.  The tall grass swaying in the wind.  The waves crashing on the shore line and then slowly moving back into the sea. Her long beautiful brown hair whipping around her. 

This is her peaceful place.  Her place to reflect and either think of nothing or everything.  To breathe and live in the here and now.  To know that all is going to be okay and she can do this life.  She can be who she needs and wants to be.  All anxious thoughts washed away and out to sea. Here she can just be.

Just a short story I thought of when seeing this beautiful picture.
