Weekend 99: To heal

Sometimes we get busy in things we can’t bypass which means less time for hobby. I couldn’t get enough time to work on a post for last couple of days but all was for a good cause and so no regrets.

In the new normal, we try to maintain a rotuine of taking walk everyday. No hard exercising is possible as the gyms are still closed, a preferred choice is walking for atleast an hour ++.  Here are some images from our recent walks.

What happens when people open their hearts?
They get better.

The final stage of healing is using what happens to you to help other people. That is healing in itself. ~ Gloria Steinem

In a world filled with hate, we must still dare to hope.                                                            In a world filled with anger, we must still dare to comfort.                                                  In a world filled with despair, we must still dare to dream.                                                  And in a world filled with distrust, we must still dare to believe.
~Michael Jackson

I walk every day, and I look at the mountains and the fields and the small city, and I say: ‘Oh my God, what a blessing.’ Then you realize it’s important to put it in a context beyond this woman, this man, this city, this country, this universe.      ~Paulo Coelho

Clouds are blessings too

Our daily walks bring us closer to nature in one or the other way. The above photos are journal of 5 pm walk. I do not see sunsets these days as the days are quite long. Sun rises little before four in the morning and sets after 19 hours.

Nurturing Thursday: Realize

Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art. ~Maya Angelou

***************

I haven’t been using my camera for a while. I am not aware of the exact reason but I guess recent circumstances didnn’t encourage me. Just yesterday evening I thought of taking it out on a walk. The change in routine got me engaged in a creative process and for sure lift my spirit.

Do something which helps you in changing your mood and brings a smile.

Stay safe and healthy.
