It is so easy to get caught up with how busy life is and how awful it can be. That is why I think it’s very important to do little things that help you see the good in life and help you truly appreciate the world we live in. All you have to do is just stop and take a moment. A moment to watch the sunset, laugh at little children’s behaviour or even watch how the rain falls. So here are a couple of things that I have realized I need to do more often:
Spend some time outside
I recently had my morning devotion outside. I took everything and sat on the grass in our back garden and it is absolutely beautiful. There’s something about being outside that gives you space to breathe and just think.
Watch the rain
Rain is beautiful and just taking a couple minutes from your day to watch the rain is very relaxing. Like being outside there is something special about rain.
Watch something funny
Like EE Cummings said, “The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.”
Marvel at nature’s beauty
Nature is one of my favourite places to be. It honestly is amazing to see how well each colour works with the other and how perfect everything is without human intervention. How beautiful the flowers and the birds are, how well they work together and how content every one of them is.
As you’ve seen I absolutely adore nature and there’s actually a word that I’ve found to describe this:
Aesthete (adj.) – someone with a deep sensitivity to the beauty of art or nature
Have a lovely week! Don’t forget that your mind is a garden and your thoughts are the seeds. You can chose to grow flowers or weeds.
