The retreat I went on last weekend was everything I needed. The mountains, fresh air, and greenery was the perfect cure for the anxiety I'd been having for the past few weeks. I finally felt at peace and most importantly able to grasp a feeling of what I had been lacking spiritually. One evening, when everyone was participating in activities I decided to wander off into the forest. It was truly the happiest I had been in a while. I listened to the creek babbling, the wind stirring the trees, and just opened my eyes to the wonders around me.
