Nurturing Thursday # 6

“Stop focusing on how stressed you are,

and remember how blessed you are. “

I love to collect leaves and bring them indoors to decorate my home.  I put them in my tiny vases and spread beauty around my home. When they dry I return them back to nature. I got these ones in my front yard where my beautiful maple tree is letting go of them, getting ready for the long winter that is coming. I collected these leaves, I gave a hug to my tree and I said thank you!

I made a mandala as well. I organized the leaves on the table and when I took the photo I saw that the light was reflecting exactly in at the center of the mandala. Isn’t it magical?

On Tuesday I didn’t have an easy day at work. So, instead open the door and bring all the work stress inside home I stopped in my yard, took a deep breath and saw all nature beauty around me. The few minutes I spent collecting these leaves and talking with my tree were enough to put a smile in my face to greet my kids.

Have a lovely day!

    I glad your simple act of enjoying them — eased the burden of a stressful day and provided the transition into your family time! ❤

  2. I love how you deal with a stressful day, by leaving it at the door. My husband does the same and I am so appreciative of his intention not to bring it in our home (although I am always happy to let him vent). Have a wonderful weekend, Elizabeth! xx
