Stop Bustling

A reminder I have to tell myself 100 times each day.

Slow down.

Breathe.

LOOK.

There are tiny miracles all around.

Today is a cloudy, foggy, coolish day. The pellet stove is humming in the living room, and I’m in my polarfleece vest. Yet outside, the world is afire. Just outside my window is the most *amazing* assortment of yellows, oranges, and the occasional spicy red. The trees are burning in one last final blaze of glory, and I’m priveledged to be able to peer outside and feel that beauty seep deep into my pores.

 

Relax.

Breathe.

Be.

My mantra for each day is as simple as this: find something beautiful, something amazing, something wonderful each day. Stop and see it, stop and take it in, Stop and enjoy that moment, however long it may be, and carry it with me for the rest of my day.

Sometimes, life is just as simple as this.
