Back to reality

Why is it such a shock when you first hit the outskirts of the city after a trip away? The amount of traffic seems to be immense and bothersome after the wide open roads and days of looking at nothing but mother nature in all her beauty.

The wildflowers are everywhere and because we've had a very wet winter, everything is green and lush looking. The urge for me to pack up and move to the country is always great after I've been away. I'm an outdoors and wide open spaces kinda girl.

Gazanias - they grow wild along the roadside

The trees take on their own personalities

How can you not love the beauty of the creeks?
I did a lot of soul searching and just listening to my heart this weekend - it's amazing how country living and fresh air can do that to a person. I think there's lots of things that need to change in my life and more balance is definitely needed.

It may mean that I'm not here every day on my blog and that I direct some of my energy to other things that I want to achieve in my life. We'll see how that one pans out though.

Sometimes we need time away from everyday living to understand how big the rut is that we've carved out for ourselves. I don't think it makes the rut any less but it does provide some perspective. So here's to finding greater perspective and the answers to some of life's greater mysteries.

Have a great week all. Cheers, Fi.

  1. What a beautiful place you live in -- and ah yes. Balance.

    it's always there. It's just sometimes we don't see it!

  2. You can't not blog! I won't let you not blog. LOL. You are very inspiring and thought provoking. And like you said in another comment, we do seem a lot alike and our lives are bit parralel just worlds apart.


Everyone has something valuable to say and I would love for you to share your thoughts
