I was walking back in to my office after lunch and just happened to look up at the sky. Right about then a breeze came up and whispered “slow down”.
I then began to try and remember the last time I went walking or just sat in the grass and just wondered. I remember being young and looking up at the clouds, just watching, for hours. Not really thinking of anything. I miss those carefree days. I also miss just walking around away from all of the noise.
It’s good to relax and just ‘take it all in’. I feel as though I’ve let that get away from me or that somehow I’ve forgotten how important it is to notice the little things.
Like that grasshopper on the fence post that is watching me ever so closely to make sure I don’t give him a bad day.
That was a restfull day. Going down this country road admiring the fall colors. Then looking down to find that grasshopper staring at me. I guess that’s what I mean by really looking around at what’s going on around you.
I can’t remember the last time I just looked around, or stopped and looked at the sky and just emptied my head – or looked up at the stars and took the time to admire the beauty of it all.
Life has gotten so busy. I think that for this new year, 2011, I’ve made a resolution to take the time to Learn to be STILL. Actually there is an Eagles song by that title I haven’t heard in awhile…I think I’ll dig it out. I’ve heard that “Rushing” can kill you anyway so I figure it will be good for me.
I’m going to stop, and rest, and take the time to admire the world around me and the people I love and not be so ‘worked’ and ‘rushed’.
Well I’m hoping that I post more often to my ‘Blahg” here as that can be relaxing as well. I thank everyone who stops by to take a peek and hope you enjoy your time here and most of all have a Blessed and Prosperous New Year!.
Peace, Love, and Stillness,
