Been outside lately?

Finally! I was home on a Saturday and it wasn't raining which meant that I could get outdoors and work on the farm. I had really missed being outside. I needed to feel the sunshine and watch the wind blow through the trees. I wanted to hear the birds sing and see the rabbits and deer play. I had been in the concrete and glass, steel and asphalt world a little too long.

So I cranked my weed trimmer and cut the grass and weeds growing under the fence line. And never mind it was hot. I cranked my tractor and mowed some of our pastures. That evening, I relaxed, refreshed from my day's experience outdoors.

You see, I believe we were born to be outdoors, in nature, as much as possible. Isn't that why you enjoy a trip to the beach where you can smell the salt air and feel the sunshine? And isn't that why you go stand high on a mountain and breathe clean, pure air and strain your eyes to see forever?

And after being outdoors, you come back to the inside world, refreshed and recreated. Live Positive and make a life worth living by getting yourself outside today.
