This is a cooperative blogging post, a friend and I are both digging deeper into some thought provoking questions. So this Monday we are looking at what my soul craves.....
At this moment in time I think my soul craves more connection with nature. There are times in my life, most of the time really (which is a topic I have in mind for another post on another day) when things seem to be in place, I am doing what I want to do, walking the path I love. So most things in my life are there by choice, and when my soul is craving something I am usually pretty good at listening. Right now I think my soul is craving more time in nature.
I am working toward that end, feeding my soul what it needs. Hiking with my son, is wonderful, especially this time of year. My youngest isn't a fan of hiking but my oldest enjoys hiking and having time to talk and walk and be in nature. Also this time of year I enjoy cleaning up my gardens, weeding and raking and just getting things ready for winter, the air is cooler and fresher, love the crisp air.
One thing I am missing is my walking time on the Greenway in Morganton. I am exercising differently, and just can't seem to fit that daily walk into my schedule right now. My other time outside is making up for that, I think, but there are times I just want to squeeze that walk in, but don't want it to be rushed, want to take my time, enjoy the changing leaves on the Greenway. In sitting here typing I am thinking that a nice walk around our property would probably fulfill that need. We have around 11 acres here, forest, pasture, creeks and we have a park across the street. I may need to stop trying to squeeze a Greenway walk into my week and instead focus on what I have at hand, what is right in front of my eyes.
