Insignificance


One of the things I like to do is to get out to nature and hike.  I'm a social hiker.  I love to socialize when I do it.  I'm not trying to conquer things or compete with anyone.  I just like to get out into the Rocky mountains and breathe.

Hiking for me is therapy.  It puts me, my life and all its minutiae into perspective.

In the grand scheme of things, I am but a speck.  If I am but a speck then it stands to reason that challenges or conflicts in my life are really not that significant in comparison to most things.

When I get out there, I feel small.  I feel that few things are that big a deal.  Along with blogging, this is another of my personal therapy practices.





What kinds of therapy do you employ to keep a good mental, physical & emotional balance?

  1. Prayer. And creativity. And walking outdoors. And lots and lots of hugs given and received.

  2. For you... O!

    The saying is true...feel good, look good; look good, feel good.

    In this case I think I looked good because I feel so good being out there.
