Nature does not hurry,
yet everything gets accomplished
When I read that quote, I just wanted to Slow down.
To live this moment in a Fully Present state of mind.
Shut out the noise of news, traffic and life's list of this has to be done Now.
No it doesn't, everything can wait.
At least for a moment.
And in that moment I may discover the song of a bird, the blue of the sky, the babble of water, the call of geese heading to the lake, the sounds of life all around me.
And in the moment, the world didn't stop turning and I am happy that I paused.
Now that didn't take long, did it?
Today is a blue sky, green grass, breezes blowing sort of day.
The rains of the past three days has washed our world looks fresh and clean.
Today I just have to get outside and look up at the dancing leaves, green against the blue sky.
Life is everywhere. There's always something new bursting forth in the valley, if only I will take time to stop all the noise inside my head, look, and listen.
I need to hit that Pause button before the beauty of this day passes me by.
I take another deep breath. It's a day of contemplation, unwinding, renewing.
Listen, the birds are singing their song. And it's a happy one!
