This week's topic is 'Feeling Alive'

What makes you feel alive through and through? What does it mean to be and feel alive? When are you the best version of yourself?

I feel most alive when I am out in nature. I spent most of my life outdoors. I paddled canoes for miles in the Boundary Waters in Minnesota and lived out of a backpack for weeks on end. I spent endless hours in my kayak on Lake Superior with my tent and supplies packed into the bow so that I could go exploring islands and shipwrecks and lighthouses.

I've snorkled gorgeous Caribbean reefs and learned to scuba dive so that I could explore more of the undersea world.
Hiking and camping were a huge part of my life and thinking of all those marvelous experiences makes my spirit soar once more.

These days, due to health reasons, my outdoor time is mostly spent on my back deck. Listening to the birds and enjoying the plants I have growing in pots brings me joy!

As a forester, I can relate to you being in nature makes me feel connected with the whole ecosystem and instantly relieves me from the stress of my daily routine! Great photos, especially this beautiful Cyanocitta cristata! 😀

You're a forester and you are not sharing stories of your nature experiences? I would love hearing about your job.

The baby bluejays have just recently left the nest and are still hanging close together in a group as they explore the world. It's so fun to see a tree branch full of shiny new bluejays!

I'm planning to write some posts in the future about my trips to Nature but I must find the extra time for that! Gaming is my major passion as you can see in my profile 😛 Amazing birds and very beautiful too, I would love to see some more pics of them in the future! :)

Have you joined the Feathered Friends Community? That might inspire you and I'd love to see you there.

I am not a gamer, but if I ever want to start I'll know where to come for help!

There is something very therapeutic about being out in nature. I can hear the birds singing in my garden at the moment. Wonderful.

I found a app for my phone that identifies the bird by its song. I'm learning to recognize more of them!

The most prominent song bird we have in our garden is a blackbird, actually we have two pairs one in the front garden, the other in the back garden. I hear these most of the time. But there are other birds whose song I don't recognise, so an app that identifies them sounds like a good idea.

This is so nice. I'm so sorry that you can't get to do those beautiful and fun things you enjoy doing before. You're also super blessed to have nature so close to you.

I wish you all the happiness in the world 😌💜✨

I am so very grateful for all the adventures and traveling that I got to do while I was able to! And now I am grateful that I have all of you to keep me company while I enjoy being out on my deck. You help me see more of the world than I ever thought possible!

So heartwarming

Hello dear friend @melinda010100 good day
There is no better place than being in contact with nature to feel alive
Beautiful shots.
have a beautiful day

You know how wonderful being out in nature is! There is no better place to be!

Always grateful for accomplishing much outdoors when young, still get out to enjoy nature coming to your doorstep.

Paddling big lakes camping along the way must have been exhilarating.

I fully expected to be able to continue all of the things that I loved far longer than I have been able to. But the memories are certainly sweet.

Life happens we retire enjoying whatever we able to accomplish. Willingness there, body unable, memories of what we achieved we cling to.

Exactly! ♥️

I was only Kayaking once, but really loved it. We nearly got caught up in some fishing lines and also we needed to go through a lock which was exciting!

I don't think I ever went through a lock in my kayak. Any of the locks on the Great Lakes are huge. Built for Lakers that are over 1000 feet long, it would be an adventure in a kayak!

Wonderful post dear :-) I am happy that now you have this little paradise build up on and around your deck. A special place as far as I saw on previous posts. Also very happy, that we, being far away, met here on chain.

I love knowing I have a dear friend in Austria! I only saw a small portion of the country when I traveled there, but I loved the people and the wonderful food! Your food posts make me wish I was there again!

Nature sure is fantastic, and great to see you enjoying it first hand, I also try to experience nature as much as I can, enjoy your day and stay !ALIVE

It's been great getting to know you and see how your community works this week!

Some of the best nature is close at hand 🙂 I spent the morning watering my new trees and then the garden. With binoculars hanging on a post within reach to check out the birds. Hopefully you are set up to check out ecency on your deck 😉

I sit out there most mornings with a cup of tea, my camera and Ecency. Are you on Discord? I'd love to have you stop in the Ecency Discord. ♥️

I'm on discord but not real active mostly just on there to follow a few games. Maybe I should check out Ecency

It is an active group of nice folks! We pride ourselves on working to keep the Discord decent, kind, and helpful. I'm there most of the time and would love to have you there. ♥️

Very nice post, you open yourself, and I know you a little better now! 👏 😎

I've been here so long that I feel like everyone knows everything there is to know! 😀

What nice shots @melinda010100 !

Undoubtedly life outdoors and in natural environments has a very positive influence on human beings, even for those who don't enjoy it.

It not only helps to lower our stress and anxiety level, but also collaborates in certain chemical processes in our body that make us feel better.

In fact, enjoying the sun helps us to produce vitamin D, which is very important for our immune system.

Your postcards are a great invitation to feel good!

Greetings

Thanks! My immune system needs all the boosting it can get! I love being out early watching the sun come up!

So make the most of the sunshine and fresh air!

And try to surround yourself with a beautiful landscape like the one you showed us in your photos!

Big hug from Argentina

Completly agree for me too outside in nature is where i feel most Alive no deers here though where i am. 😎

To do all that you have done in the past must be so grafting, now more than ever.
Us old-timers should do what we can until we just can't do it anymore.

When that day comes and it will for everyone, at least we will have a vault of time well spent rather than question why we didn't do more when we were younger.

God bless your spirit and appreciation for all that you still have.
