She had had enough with her crazy busy schedule. She wanted to get away from the hustle bustle of life. She wanted to step away from the chaos of the daily life. With the never ending responsibilities at work and at home, she was stressed-out.She needed an outlet. She longed for solitude.
She wanted to sort out her thoughts : What does she want to do? Who is she really? What is really important to her?
Most of all, she wanted to spend time with the most important person in her life : herself.
One day, she took a walk in a woods, alone. Enjoying the beautiful nature,absorbing the cool breeze and listening to the chirping of the birds, she relaxed. Away from the chaos, away from the noise, here she was enjoying for the first time her own companionship. Nothing bothered her now. She felt refreshed.She got the energy to face her life.It’s not the instant kick that you get by drinking a cup of tall Starbucks coffee.But it’s a soothing long lasting peace of mind.
She was ready to face the world.
That’s when she learned the lesson:
A walk in the woods is better than a tall cup of coffee 🙂
