“Hiking, oh, how I miss you”

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

John Muir

I miss hiking. It’s cold now but even when it was nice out, I was so busy, I didn’t make enough time to take myself hiking. I miss hiking. I usually drag the family out to hikes pretty regularly but I totally slacked last summer and fall. I hope I can get my butt out there soon and take in all that nature has to remind me about.

Something that always inspires me is the way trees grow. Some break through rocks, some grow over water making a cave, and some grow so weird and wobbly it makes me question nature altogether. We humans tend to grow in the shape of our environments. So to see trees just do their thing, it’s like magic to me.

Hiking gets me away from all the busyness in my life. On a good hike, I leave feeling refreshed and tired all at once. I will have more time to myself soon. This little boo isn’t going to be a toddle forever. I’m so grateful that her father and I got to be home with her for her first two years of life. I’m ready for her to be in school and have friends and be part of some rec programs. I can’t wait to watch my little boo grow.

Ok I got off topic, hiking is great and I think I should totally create a hike challenge for myself once it gets warmer out.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
