Sunset walk yesterday. Incredibly beautiful. Grateful to nature as there was complaining and grumpiness along the way. Nature is amazing at absorbing and transmuting. xoxoxo

Thomas and I did our walk different today. Hit tennis balls, then sat in the shade for yummy sour dough bread and grapes. Then a walk around the soccer field. xoxo

Team TLC walk at Wilbur May Arboretum today. Being outdoors with these two is like a healing ointment that soothes the sore spots.

There was some heavy duty rubbing of one another’s thorns just before heading out for our walk. Nature is wonderful at bringing everyone back to center.

One Way We Use The Gift of Nature

**THROWBACK POST**

February 9 2016:

“I think, Lillian worries, Camilla just is.” – Thomas wisdom shared last night as we were reading in my bed before going to sleep …

He had a rough day yesterday. He made a choice at school that caused an un-lovely consequence.

On the ride home I let him know he could not use his digital time as he overused it in the morning. By the time we got home he was in much distress. He had a full blown meltdown when he got home and I knew we needed to go for a walk.

I shared how unhealthy it is to not let oneself feel and experience anger and other negative emotions. That we must find that place where we can let ourself feel it physically, being with it, and without hooking into the story of the negative emotion; which can cause us to be harsh with others.

Nature is a wonderful guide during times like these, times when we resist feeling the rawness of life. About an hour after our walk Thomas had settled into acceptance and we had a great night. May you take advantage of the gift of nature when needed. xoxo
