I spent yesterday at a spiritual retreat center in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It reminded me of the value of getting away from it all, even if only for a day. The drive towards the mountains in the early morning was beautiful, and the day spent in the company of like-minded people with plenty of opportunity for quiet reflection fed my spirit.
The topic of the retreat was making conscious choices – something that is an integral part of conscious living. How do you live your life? Do you make choices that limit you, or choices that allow you to expand? Make the choice to say “yes” to yourself today.
Do you wish you could get away from your busy life even just for a day? Give yourself the gift of a retreat. Retreats come in many shapes or forms, the main idea is that it gets you away from your usual routine and allows you to do something that nourishes your spirit.
But as much as I enjoyed my day away from it all, I was happy to come home to Amber at the end of the day. Pets nourish our spirit every day.
