Attending Shakespeare in the park with my family overlaps a lot of things for me. Time to relax in a park, time to view folks performing their interpretation of Shakespeare’s script, time with my family, getting some son , talking with others about the story content and reflecting on my own life.
Before Guillain-Barré Syndrome, I was running trails. Mostly hills and gaining elevation too. Really getting a workout.
Now, my focus is on walking a good distance on flat land. I’m still getting out on trails and being with nature as much as I can.
I’ve said this for years, but it is even more relevant for me now. I like to call it movement, instead of working out.
I’ve always been a big dreamer. I like to visualize things and then take the steps to create them. Out of all these life experiences and after having had this major life change in the last 10-months, I am finding the greatest joy in the small things
One of the great gifts Guillain-Barré Syndrome has given me is to truly know in my heart that I am loved. Those closest to me showed up in such loving ways. Helping in ways I would not have imagined prior to this. This started with my family and extended to many friends.
This Oak tree is so strong and it doesn’t work hard to do so. It just is. If you are stressed, challenged and/or feeling worried today, find some piece of nature and give it 10-15 minutes. Relax and breath.
