After having the house shut up all winter I embrace a warm spring day, when the windows can be open and all I hear is the sound of spring.
Right now, as I sit on my porch, cat curled up in the chair, and dog at my feet, the sound of a warm spring day is calming me. The sound of the wind blowing through the tall pines, robins chirping, and the bees buzzing around the dogwood trees brings a smile to my face.
How many times have we busied ourselves so much that we forget to stop and listen to the sounds of nature? I encourage you to stop whatever you’re doing, go outside, close your eyes, and listen to the sound of nature.
If you are longing for a simpler life, little things like using nature to unwind is one of your first steps to finding balance and peace in your life.
