Growing Up With Wilderness #WildernessRevival

By @ATraditionalGuy on Twitter and Gab

It is accurate to say that the world children are growing up in today is vastly different to the one I grew up in 30 years ago. The kids of today have the internet, tv streaming services, online gaming and plenty of other things which keeps them inside for hours and while there is nothing wrong with these advances in moderation when I was young we had none of them and I had a very different experience growing up.

When I was young my family would often go camping and go out bush walking, these experiences were very precious to me growing up. Not only was the time spent with my family very special but being in and around the nature and the wilderness gave me a great appreciation for it. It gave me a great and deep respect for animals and sparked my love of gardening I have developed over time.

Spending time in the wilderness is important no matter what age we are because it connects us with the world around us and allows us those special moments of peace and rest from the daily grind of life. It also gives us a feeling of connection with our ancestors as we learn to appreciate nature the way they used to and enjoy the Wilderness Revival.
