We’ve been in Wyoming for ten months now and I feel like I’m finally starting to settle in. It’s not easy getting to know a new and unfamiliar place, especially one that is so different in so many ways from what I’m used to. I’ve learned that I need to adjust my body as well as my life activities in order be at peace in this new surrounding.
Fall is my favorite season. The crunch of the leaves and the stillness of nature as it prepares for the impending winter… it’s pure heaven on earth.
Lately, I’ve been feeling incredibly overwhelmed by just about everything in life. There have been a few times where I felt like the walls were about to cave in, and that I was going to have a panic attack right in the middle of wherever I was at. It’s unsettling to feel this way. I’ve been attempting to combat these feelings by taking a lot of walks and soaking up the sun.
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden
