The Healing Power of Nature

Honestly, this week I’d have felt lost without having my precious garden to escape to. It’s helped give me a proper focal sense of purpose during my first full week of unemployment due to redundancy, an actual, practical physical space to spend time in welcome activity as well as providing me with an abstract emotional passive space to process how I feel about not having a job any more.

This week I’ve had ample sunshine and fresh air and feel-good exercise and a quiet, subtle reminder that whatever else this pandemic has put a stop to, nature has endured throughout. Over this past year of repressive Covid restrictions and devastations the seasons have turned as ever, from spring to summer to autumn to winter and now back to spring again. The world still turns on its axis, familiar and free, and life goes on regardless…

So for me, I’d have to say that the healing power of nature has won the week, helping to keep me smiling through an otherwise difficult few days 🙂

  1. Sorry to hear that Ruth! Perhaps it’s no coincidence that this period of an ending coincides with the emerging Spring. May this be a positive period of new beginnings for you too 😊

  2. I’m sorry you are unemployed. I know how hard that can be, and not just for financial reasons. You are right, though, nature marches on. I saw some daffodils out of the corner of my eye yesterday. Here in Michigan! I know, looking at my FB memories that for a few years, on this date we had snow, so I’m just grateful for sunshine today and a spot of yellow in the yard. Hope you have a great week this week!
