Weeping Willow Tree
Atualizado: 14 de out. de 2022
Spring described splendid weather at the end of May in and around London, England. It had been a particularly good time for natures blossom.
As England’s countryside offered such spectacular views, Susan set off on her first Sunday trek in ages. She was recovering from a leg injury. On this occasion, woodlands nearby a small village were chosen. Up on the horizon of a hilltop she could see what appeared to be a weeping willow tree.
Susan slowly hiked to the top of the hill by following its path. She felt emotionally calmed by such beauty. Getting close by, she froze, staring in disbelief, and took in the magnificent sight. Its green overflowing leaves were flickering in the breeze. It gave her tremendous happiness.
Reconvening her trip up the hill for the last fifty to sixty meters had allowed her to absorb the natural beauty even more vividly. She had never seen anything so impressive while relaxing when she needed it the most to appreciate her life on a physical, as well as emotional, mental, and spiritual level.
She felt so good she lacked the words to describe her innermost thoughts. However, she knew endorphins were being released. Endorphins act on the opiate receptors in our brains, they reduce pain and boost pleasure, resulting in a feeling of well-being.
Upset by breaking her leg had not perturbed Susan’s positive attitude to survive and thrive.
