60 Seconds for Time Out Tuesday: How Might Nature Relieve Some Feelings of Despair?
by Diane Wyzga | August 30, 2022 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Bellows Falls, Vermont!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Time Out Tuesday and your host, Diane Wyzga.
Maybe when it comes to setbacks and despair you’re the impatient type: shake it off, get on with it, enough with waiting, let’s move move move!
But what if there’s something to learn from Nature? What if there’s a clue to show us a less stressful way to be in the middle of the muddle?
“Does anything in nature despair except man? An animal with a foot caught in a trap does not seem to despair. It is too busy trying to survive. It is all closed in, to a kind of still, intense waiting. Is this a key? Keep busy with survival. Imitate the trees. Learn to lose in order to recover, and remember that nothing stays the same for long, not even pain, psychic pain. Sit it out. Let it all pass. Let it go.” [May Sarton]
Practical Tip: Give it a go. See if “letting it go” is a fit for you to practice easier living in a stressful world.
