I am learning to breath more, slow down, and notice things. When I do this I am almost always rewarded with something beautiful from nature.
Last night while at the lake, I was watching all the boats and the many interesting people. As I was watching one sailboat go slowly by, I happened to look up and I was so glad that I did. It was the beginning of a beautiful sunset and because I was quiet and taking time to pay attention to the things around me I got to enjoy it. Rushing through life can become a habit. We feel like we have so much to do and so much to accomplish. But slowing down definitely has its own rewards. And last night I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful one.
