He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed. ~ Albert Einstein
Take time to open your eyes and really see all of the amazing, wonderful things and people surrounding you.
Be grateful for the wondrously simple things in life.
Splash in rain puddles, jump up and down on bubble wrap, admire the buttery glow of the setting sun.
Revel in the silky soft fur of your pet, appreciate how your muscles relax as you stand beneath the sluicing water of a warm shower, inhale the rich, awakening aroma of your morning cup of coffee.
Be openly aware of those people who make you laugh, bring you joy, lift you up, even in the smallest of ways.
Raise a hand in thanks to the kind gentleman who lets you merge in traffic. Offer a smile to the courteous woman that holds a door for you. Notice the sweetness of your children as they awaken each morning, rumpled and sleepy-eyed. Give your significant other a loving embrace in thanks for their humor, helpfulness and support.
Notice. Contemplate. Appreciate. Stand rapt in awe.
Sing, Be Still, Listen
