Decide on heaven today.
Take 5 minutes.
Step outside. Look at the sky.
Smile. Feel beautiful.
Yesterday I got in our little pool, climbed into my son’s floaty chair, and just looked at the sky.
No thoughts. No worries. No decisions or judgements.
Just watching the clouds build and shift, listening to the amazing array of birds busily singing away. Feeling beautiful.
It’s always been a rejuvenating experience for me, to be able to just exist in nature.
What’s your “feeling beautiful” exercise? How do you connect with the natural world? When do you know you need to recharge your ‘nature’ batteries? Do you make it a regular practice?
I’m so blessed to have so much nature in my yard. I’ve got Bluebirds, Cardinals, Goldfinches, three different kinds of Woodpeckers, an occasional pair of Bluejays. There’s Titmice, Nuthatches, and a Phoebe with her nest over the basement porch door. We’ve got a family of Grey squirrels, several wild rabbits, and once in a great while we see one of the neighborhood Red fox family.
And then, about the time I get into that Zen state, a tree frog croaks, right next to me by the volume, and practically knocks me off the float and into the water. Darn those things are loud!
Nature. This is where it’s at. Go there today. Charge up your mind, your heart and soul, by connecting to something in nature today. Feel the ties that bind us to the planet, and that feed us and nourish us every day. Be beautiful.
And don’t forget to be thankful!
Have an extraordinary day today!
