Do you notice Life around you?
The people you come in contact with every day?
The lady at the grocery store?
The waiter at the restaurant?
Each caught up in their own story.
Notice them. Pay attention.
Notice the sun peeking through clouds?
See the dawning of a new day?
Hear the birds sing in the morning.
Hear the crickets chirp at night.
There is life. Wake up.
Pay attention to your breathing
Breathe in, breathe out
Notice the rhythms of life.
Notice the changing of the seasons
the turning of the leaves
the falling of the snow
the buds of life in spring
the lush growth in summer
