If you have seen me recently I’ve probably pinned you to the wall and wanted to talk about coral reefs. Why you may ask? Well because of a Nature documentary I’ve watched recently all about the South Pacific. Call it winter madness, but the clear tropical water looked fantastic. I’ve always dreamed of snorkeling in ocean waters, creatures swimming around me. Exploring a new and alien world filled with ancient wild life. So many breath taking sites to see on this gorgeous planet.
Just like many people living in the city, I live in a place that is loud, bright, and terribly distracting. I have a few little ticks I like to use to find my center. I find a quiet place and take a few slow measured breaths. Sometimes the best thing is to just get away from the all the chaos. Use your outlet. Everyone has one. Mine is writing, reading, taking a walk. With all the pulls of responsibility its easy to lose site of inner nurturing. Take every chance you can to decompress. Defiantly don’t wait until you leave work to finally let off all the steam that gets built up. You’ll feel so much better if you allow yourself to vent in increments through out the day. We all have responsibilities, just remember not to lose site of your own happiness.
The idea came to me while walking, like many of my best ideas. I was mulling over conversations where the subject fell upon our dream life. What it would be like, what it would look like. I envisioned a cottage surrounded by trees, a novel being fussed over as I took a walk in the forest to get the creative juices flowing again. This feeling, to be in a peaceful place. To be away from the hurried pressured lifestyle, blossomed into the concept for Green Zine. Come in pull up a seat, I’ll get you a cup of tea.
