Just get out

Do I love my home? Yes, I do. Sometimes you will just need a day on your sofa or in your bed with Netflix going and a steady snack supply. No proper clothes, no makeup and no intent to leave the comfort of your duvet and home. Sometimes I crave one of those days and it is a beautiful thing to do once in a while but when my duvet day gets to an end, I get an urge to go outside and explore. I want to pack my bags, take some picnic foods and find the most beautiful and locations outside in nature. It can be wanting to feel a warm summer breeze or to smell of the rain after a very hot day. It can be very frosty morning air and the golden light of autumn, being the first one to walk on fresh snow or finding the most beautiful flowers in spring when winter seemed too long to ever pass. I spend a lot of my time outside. Maybe its because I hunt down locations to shoot content or living in a very green part of the city or maybe its because I spend a good chunk of my time riding my horse through fields, forest and wilderness but there's no better option to clear your mind or getting inspired. Maybe work was tough or the weather forecast for the weekend looks too good to be true. Just get out.


Most of the time there's it no set goal or endpoint. There's nowhere I want to be and its mainly just wandering. I might start at a beautiful location I have seen driving past and as soon as I get out of my car and just start walking and wandering, there doesn’t need to be a goal point. It's just about being in the moment and taking everything in as it happens and it's so soothing especially when life is very hectic and you need some time to get away from it all. Just wander and be.


Is there a very good hiking trail where you are which rewards you with beautiful nature and a breathtaking view? Or is there some sort of manor house and garden super close which you have yet to visit? Go out and explore it. I think everyone can be guilty of not fully enjoying and exploring their surroundings and instead we find ourselves dreaming of dreamy destinations further away. Why not take advantage of what is easily accessible for you? Its something I have actively been working on the past years and I can’t stress enough how much it has changed my outlook on where I’m from and it has only nurtured my wish to explore even more so why not start with all the beauty around you?


It's not always fun to get outside by yourself even though I don’t mind some me time to make a plan out of it to get people you love involved too. You can wander together, you can explore together and make memories together. If you prefer more talking than walking, a picnic or fruit picking would be a great option for you. If it's hot you can sit by the lake or river and cool down whilst catching up. Even a little bench by the fields will do and its a probably a lot more relaxing than a loud bar or really busy restaurant. Just mixing things up a but will work wonders.


The best thing about getting out is experiencing different seasons and weathers. It might be summer now and I love exploring golden meadows and endless flowers fields but I’m so looking forward to crips autumn walks, picking pumpkins and maybe doing a little bonfire outside too. I miss wrapping up all warm and going on walks and breathing in very cold winter air. It's something you can dream about and wait for it to happen. Even thouh spring is barely over, I can’t wait to see all the cherry trees in bloom next year and get excited about it all over again.
