This week’s mini-topic seems to be (by default, I haven’t entirely planned this) Pressure. I said on Tuesday that one of the tools I use to alleviate pressure is inspiration. I use Pintrest to group these in a folder I call “printables” – which also includes stuff for my personal planner.
To me, a lot of the inspiration also brings back awesome memories as well as getting my thought process back on track. My current favourite is a poem by Victoria Erickson I’ve mentioned before in the blog. Mentally I always combine this with Bethells.
If you ever find yourself empty
from something you cannot know or name,
find a stretch of ocean,
a field, or mountainside,
or even clouds or trees
Because there are a thousand simple ways
to fill your tired soul
so you can remember
how to be,
how to see,
and most importantly,
how to breathe.
Photo image isn’t mine; I’m not sharing that until it’s complete as I am planning it to be a gift for S. I intend to over-write a photo of Bethells Beach that I took a couple of years ago and then print this out as a wall paper panel or canvas for the house this summer. This one is also used earlier in the blog; credit goes to Summit Walter Rao. Contact details are on his blog.
Where do you go when it all gets too much? What’s your re-inspire place? What poem brings you peace or inspires you to more?
