I've thought a lot about the changes I want to make upond my return. In Feng Shui, one of the best times to initiate change is upon returning home, when energies are refreshed and perspectives are broadened.
Some are minor but necessary, some will take a bit more commitment. My love and appreciation of nature has been rekindled. I am missing it already by being inside of a vehicle for the better part of this day and night to come. I've not always been a fan of morning but I see clearly that if I don't get up early to exercise, it simply won't happen, not with this family!
I'm also very energized to eat fresh and local. This has been my aspiration for quite some time now. In all the opportunity I had on vacation to "eat anything" what tasted most delicious to me were apples, peaches and string cheese. It was actually easier to eat better and more healthy while on the road than it has been at home. I need to explore this in more depth, I suspect that it has to do with time, convenience and a slew of all the responsibilities, chores, jobs and duties I've been packing around. It is time to downsize, I am uncertain, at this moment, where to begin.
I think I'll start by not thinking a little longer. One of the gifts of being outdoors is that I've been able to "get out of my head" for a bit. I need that too.
We're headed home to grab horses and one smokey colored pooch that misses me, load the trailer, make the kids run laps, throw in a few clean shirts and socks, and head to a rodeo. I'd rather be hiking, withdrawls are setting in.
