Time moves differently…

in the woods. Oftentimes, I’ll take a long walk in the forest and when I return I’ll feel like three or more hours have passed. But when I look at the clock, I’ll see it’s only been an hour or so.

Gratitude

It’s strange how the mind so rarely can find satisfaction. Today I was so frustrated because it was cold outside and I was freezing. I felt nostalgic for the past summer and I wished it could be summer and sunshine soon again.Then, I smiled when I remembered how I this summer hated the heat andFortsätt läsa ”Gratitude”
