“Someone once told me to always live for the little things in life. Live a for 5 am sunrises and 5 pm sunsets where you’ll see colors in the sky that don’t usually belong. Live for road trips and bike rides with music in your ears and the wind in your hair. Live for days when you’re surrounded by your favorite people who make you realize that the world is not a cold, harsh place. Live for the little things because they will make you realize that this is what life is about, this is what it means to be alive.”
I didn’t write that little piece of advice, but I do try to live by it. Sometimes though, we let things distract us from what is important. I have been guilty of that lately and have put the brakes on. I am being mindful of my day. I am stilling my mind and listening to my soul. Actually I feel it is trying to have a discussion with me. My soul is not putting “shoulds” on me, but giving me ideas to contemplate.
As much as I’d like to sit here and see if I can find the right words for you, it is late. I will continue later and hope you come back to visit again.
