Watching the Clouds go by

Do you remember watching the clouds go by? Whatever happened to doing that? Just laying in the grass & watching the clouds go by. Imagining what shapes the clouds made. If we were lucky we could share that time with someone else. What an amazing memory, the beauty of clouds.

I don't think this practice has gone by the wayside because we've grown up, do you? I don't remember my children ever doing it. I think it's like so many other things in our life. It's been lost because we just don't take the time any longer. We're so tied up in our modern life that we don't take the time for simple little pleasures.

We have beauty all around us. We just need to take the time to discover it. Don't schedule every minute of everyday. Don't sit by the computer for every free moment you have. Take the time to drift away like the clouds. Expand your imagination & let go of your worries. Take time to just be!

I know it's easier said then done. We all live busy lives but the stress in our lives is self created & most of it is because of the pressure we put on ourselves. Take time to be creative even if you don't feel like you are. Color outside the lines!! Let go of expectations & just enjoy watching the clouds go by!

Your life can change dramatically if you just allow it to happen. Start taking time for yourself today & allow your life to blossom into all of it's glory. Life is not about what you own, how much money you have or being someone important. Life is about the next moment, it's the only one we have. Start letting go & enjoy watching the clouds go by!!

Till tomorrow,


Quote of the day:"Take time to be creative, take time to just be. Start by just laying down & watching the clouds go by! Your soul will thank you!!"
