There’s no denying that stepping away from the city and immersing yourself in the splendor of nature has a profound effect on our personal state of well-being. For me, there’s something about stripping away all of the man made materialism and reconnecting with the raw state of mother earth. It truly brings back into focus what’s actually important and has substantial value in our lives.
I was lucky enough to be able to escape away for a 5 day excursion recently to interior British Columbia with my soul mate, Tanya Lee. I think we had both been feeling the emotional & physical drain that this past 8 months has taken on us. The struggle of the Global Pandemic and all of the raw emotional baggage it’s stirred up in everyone has been difficult to navigate. I know that I’ve let it get the best of me at times, drag me down and contaminate my spirit. It was time for us to recharge.
For five days we explored with the wide eyed enthusiasm of children. Frolicking in the splendor of an untouched landscape, bathing in nature’s healing waters and appreciating the simple pleasures. We laughed, reconnected as kindred spirits and soaked in every ounce we could. I feel healed, rejuvenated and incredibly excited for the journey ahead.
