Summer 2016 is upon us already. Have you taken some quality time for yourself or with your loved ones lately? “Life is short.” That is such a cliché but yet it is so true. Everything can change from one moment to the next while you are immersed in your own reality. Enjoy the moment as much as you can where ever you are.
Do you notice the slight breeze brushing against your face while you open the car door to walk toward the front door of your house? Do you hear the crickets chirping or the frogs croaking in the bushes nearby? Do you smell fragrant from the flowers in your front yard or your neighbor’s yard? What does the grass feel like against your bare feet? Those are some simple experiences in life that remind us of our amazing senses. Enjoy the moment by activating your senses.
We often are so busy rushing from one place to another that we forget to allow ourselves to feel and experience the environment around us. I am as guilty as the next person.
