Life is a beautiful magnificent thing, even to a jellyfishCharlie Chaplin
Life has definitely thrown some big challenges my way this year. It felt like life was going to break me and it almost did a few times. And still threatens to do so each morning I wake up. The strom clouds linger over and I have to fight to stand up and pull my umberal out.
Everything I thought to be true has been challenged, shattered, or turned upside down. So much to the point I have no idea if the color blue is actually blue or just my perception of blue.
Inside of this storm I found myself in the middle of I have started looking at life with new eyes. Realizing that maybe the way I was living before was a passive life that took for granted all the beautiful magnificent things around me.
I have realized that a lot of people, myself included, have been rushing around in life ready to get to where we are going next and forgetting to be here now. We miss so much of life and living when we do this.
My challenge for this next week, and I hope you will do it with me, is to slow down and find beauty in each moment.
While I think it is important to focus on the bigger picture I also want to take time to focus on the small moments and grasp each beautifully magnigienct thing that is happening instead of being ready to rush off and get to where I am going next.
You will never get this moment back in this place with these people.
Feel good. Pass it on.
