[there is something so liberating about going off the beaten path to camp in the woods for a weekend- getting away from society to absorb nature and sleep beneath the stars.]
[it puts my mind at peace and refuels my soul. we oftentimes forget how beautiful this planet is. like seriously- have you ever looked at a tree and just admired its beauty?]
[if your answer is no, you need to change that. for me, real life is fast paced, busy, overwhelming, and most of the time hectic.]
[which is why i have turned to camping as my escape. it’s like my own personal reset button. it puts my mind back in check]
[when planning a trip out to the woods i’m always in a frenzy thinking, “what am i gonna forget?” or “what else do we need?”.]
[but it wasn’t until one of my recent camping trips that i realized: if you forgot it, that means you can live without it. don’t stress yourself out trying to gather every possible gadget you might need or want with you. instead, bring what you can remember (which is usually the essentials) and let the rest work itself out]
[the best times happen when you have to improvise. when you have to use a spoon as a knife to spread your pb&j or when you have to make do with no bottle opener. that’s when the real magic happens.]
[we live in a society that tricks you into thinking you need all these things. when in reality, you could survive just fine without them. the best way to find that out is to go out in the woods, away from all of your things. don’t be afraid to get dirty-
e v e r y t h i n g is washable. literally everything.
don’t hold back from an experience.]
[take it all in.
every inch of soil.
every mile of that tree line.
and every minute of that sunset.]
love & light,
