Find Your Peace, Wherever You Are

During the past two years I have really grown to know myself. Being away from close friends and family who are my anchors has forced me to rely on myself for solice.

I’m not going to lie, some days I get so overwhelmed and I stay in bed from dawn to dusk. But other days I’m committed to finding joy even in the darkest of times. When my anxiety isn’t overwhelming, I can muster up the energy to get out and explore.

My peace of choice is the outdoors; I love to be surrounded by nature, whether in a park, roaming through a forest or relaxing on a beach. Something about fresh air and greenery brings my soul true peace.

Lately I’ve been struggling with my emotions and balancing a lot of major life changes. All of it began to wear me down and I let it. But this past weekend was different. I woke up at 7 am on a mission to find peace! Without much thought, or hesitation, I drove to the Couturie Forest in New Orleans’ City Park. I had been here once before, and somehow my soul just knew it was what I needed. I walked around for about 30 minutes and allowed nature to clear my mind. I left feeling 100x lighter and knew I’d be back tomorrow.

Here is where I’ve found a little peace in this robust city! Check out some nice pictures from my excursion below:

Trying times are just that – trying. When you finally have the desire to do something… go for it! Go out and find a piece of peace.

Warmly,
