Winter Woodlot

                                                           December 31, 2012

     Today is the last day of 2012. The year ends no matter how you fared, what you lost or how you celebrated. It was a mixed bag for me. There were indeed many celebrations along with a few disappointments. Later,  I will find some solitude and reflect on the year that was 😮

     My favorite place to find quiet and peacefulness, is in the woods. Time will not permit that today, so I will find a spot in my mind and let everything go. A man once told me that I needed to find a way to manage stress. I struggle still now and then trying to let go of what I cannot change, but the woods makes everything better.

     Yesterday, we worked horses in the woods. We cut firewood, waded deep snow drifts and found peace at every turn. Today, several times, I encountered stress that was almost crippling. I reached deep inside and peace came over me. I found that little corner of my mind where all the good things are ……. I am OK now. I just needed a little solitude.

     The new year is just hours away. I resolve to make changes in myself. I will set aside a little time every day just for me. I will allow myself a minute or two upon waking, to let my mind catch up, my body heal and my soul seek the real answers. … Besides, it’s easier than dieting  😮
