Wellness Tool #18: Nature
I spent most of my life rushing from one thing to the next never stopping to enjoy my surroundings. In recovery I have found a calm and a peace that I used to think I would always allude me. Getting out in nature and enjoying the beauty around me is an excellent wellness tool for me. I am reminded that a higher power put all of us here in perfect alignment. And all that is expected of me is to be the best flawed human being I can be.
