Last week has been a wonderful week. I have had more energy than in a long time (knock-on-wood), and it feels wonderful to do quite normal things, without the exhaustion after.
I have gone for rather long hikes, my camera and I, and Iave taken nature pics (I might show you a few when I get to download it from my camera).
It feels very meditative, because I see my surrounding with new eyes every day, and I look for the details. Mindfulness can come in so many shapes and forms, and right now the search for a good motive in nature, is for me very giving.
What is it that you do, that feels meditative?
Last night, I was invited to a friend for a great dinner and some drinks. I know it is not the wisest desicion to have some wine, it might set my health back a bit after. But hey, I can not stop living either! I love good conversation over a glass of wine, I can not lie, and it invigorates me on a different level than my everyday eating healthy and napping to keep me going.
Can we always live balaced and make the right choices?
I can not. I do it much, I do it often, I do it every day. But, once in a while, I have to have the feeling that I am alive. The moments of forgetting my limitations are golden, they bring moments of happiness. And I need them, even when they are costly.
