When was the last time you stopped and took a moment to really take in the beauty of nature? Your innermost self escapes your body and hovers close by while you become one with your surroundings. When you really focus on the outside, everything inside fades and you can catch a magical moment.
Whether it be a small creature you avoided stepping on
or whose habitat we keep imposing on
or the way the sun peeks through the clouds in the distance
or the bright ball of beaming sunlight asking you to move beyond the tree to sneak into your heart
or the flowers fighting to stay alive through the shrubs on the side of the road
or the blooming flowers from the thorn bush reminding you that there is beauty even through pain
or a furry little sneak who climbs up the garden trellis, has a look around then moves onto the next yard
or the sunset over the water on a clear evening
Every small moment you take not only enriches your life with calm, but helps us all see beauty in each small thing, even in ourselves. In our busy lives we are always in a rush to go nowhere, always anxious, always depressed, always mad, sad, scared, late…
All it takes is a moment. You take this moment for your body, your mind, your soul and spirit. Enjoy life when and while you can, while you are living it. These moments are breaths. Remember to stop and take a long deep one every once in a while. Making sure you are still breathing that your heart still beating, and that you are caring for yourself.
