Every time a car went by we stopped and waved. What amazed me most was that everyone waved back. And if a neighbor happened to be out in the yard we would stop and Colin would very quietly say, Hi, I am Colin. Everyone stopped to talk to him and when we walked by again the next day he didn't have to introduce himself they knew who he was and stopped to see how he was doing. It was such a wonderful reminder of how slowing down changes everything. How looking at the simplest things with awe and wonder opens up new avenues of learning. It was a reminder that all you have to do is quietly introduce yourself or wave and your world will suddenly include people you didn't know just a day before.
I hope that as spring fills the world with beautiful colors and sights and sounds you will take a moment to enjoy them. I hope that you will be able to connect with people you may not have connected with before and that you will recognize those people and things that fill you with inspiration and energy. Spring is a wonderful time of the year. It brings with it hope and renewal. It brings new beginnings and reclaimed dreams. Take a minute or two each day to see your world as if it you were experiencing it through the eyes of a two year old. It is truly a special gift you can give yourself at this very special time of year!
