I Went To The Woods

Anxiety pulsed through my body today.  When this happens it’s hard for me to stay present.  My mind takes over and I get stuck in my head, unable to see what is right in front of me, to hear what’s going on around me.

So I went to the woods, to try and walk off the anxiety.  I looked for the small things,  because the small things, like a whisper, demand my attention.  The demand focus.

They help bring me back to the moment and out of myself.

These are some of the things that I found in the woods today…
