It is hard to explain or express how beautiful it feels to be able to recognise the poor behaviour that I had. I know how much opportunity I created and lost. Is this me regretting something? No not even for an instant. There is no point in regretting anything. You are not a time keeper and you are not able to turn back the hands of time. I have a precious small amount of time to be on this planet, and I do not intend on being a person who cannot get out of my own head. There is SO much out there to enjoy. There are such wonderful people, animals and nature.
Today, it is absolutely beautiful out there. There is not even a chill in the air. It is warmish and the sun is trying to break through. There is a light breeze making the trees look like angels are gently brushing them. The birds out there are dancing both in the air but also in the trees. I've always wondered if the game tag was originally created by birds. They are always looking like they are chasing one another and saying "You're it." No more than one second after the first one catches the other, the other one is in hot pursuit. Actually there is this Disney movie, 'Bambi,' in which they use this word to describe the behaviour of animals in spring: "Twitterpated." What a neat word. It may sound immature in its essences, but it is apt in describing the life that we know is awakened every spring time.
Awakened, yes. That is exactly what happens to me after the snow is gone. My spirit is awakened. I feel this overwhelming urge to get out and explore everything. To see what is new and what has changed. Check out some places that I have never been before. I will walk just so I can inhale the air. I know for a fact that I could sit outside for hours and not care for one second about anything else in this world. I could just watch the performance that is put on daily by Mother Nature. The peace that you can find when you sit back and just inhale/breathe, is something that I hope all of you enjoy. To me, it is something that allows snapshots to be created in my head, to be filed in a place where I can easily access them whenever I feel blue. For example; I only need to mention Newfoundland to my husband or two daughters and I know I will get the same reaction from them, absolute bliss. No, it wasn’t this fancy trip with roller coasters and waterslides, but it was a time when the four of us worked as a family, loved as a family and experienced life as a family. It is MOST definitely one of my happys, without question.
You should see what beautiful things happened to Newfoundland. They might not be the richest people in the world, but they love. When you first arrive in Port Aux Basques, you will be impressed with the sheer mastery of the captain of the ferry. This port is not the easiest thing to manoeuvre into, but they do it like a hot knife through butter. The landscape leaves a lot to be desired. There are sporadic houses randomly placed and the ground is barren, with again sporadic rocks placed in odd spaces. You have a choice, turn left, turn right. When we arrived we turned right. This is not a disappointing trip in any circumstance. I would highly recommend everyone to go to Newfoundland.
Travelling is something that I like to do. My most favourite place to travel is here in Nova Scotia. We have such a diverse landscape. George and I will drive in the summer and just follow a map to anywhere. This is when we are at our best. Allowing the universe to take over. Trust me. We have steered in the wrong direction yet. My happy for today again, is nature.
Happy Does It ;o)
