Today I've been cleaning and organizing my home, so I made a cup of coffee, grabbed a pile of papers on which I draw rough sketches and ideas, and went outside for a short break. It was supposed to be unsettled weather today, but instead it is just gorgeous. Sitting there, I looked around me at the blue sky, the clouds and the trees, and was filled with gratitude for the gift of life.
Someone is cutting grass down the street, I hear the cars go by, and a neighbors dog is barking, but even with all that noise, everything in this moment is perfect. Whenever I can, I try to remind myself that this is the only moment we have, and we really miss out when our minds are cluttered with stuff from the past, or thoughts of the future. How wonderful to stop the mind chatter, and just 'be'.
There is nothing like the feel of sunshine warming your body to make it seem like all is well in the world, at least in this moment. Wherever you are, I hope you are able to take a few moments, and remind yourself that being alive, even with the stress and problems, is truly a great blessing.
Have a wonderful and sacred day!
