I have started to notice the beauty everywhere I look. Today we are so busy in life we forget to stop and smell the roses. That saying is so very important especially in this busy life we are all leading, even during meditation and walks in nature it is hard to slow the mind down enough to notice the beauty that is all around us. Take the time to sit out and look around at the natural world. Today I noticed the way a bird flaps its wings then glides before flapping its wings another couple of time to continue on its journey. Amazing! Isn’t that Amazing. My mind constantly wanders from past to future and forgets to stop in the present. How can we live our best life if we are forgetting to stop in the now and we are always looking forward and looking back. Today I am going to try to redirect my thoughts when they wander. Pull them back to the present. I am going to acknowledge when my mind wanders backwards into the past and say “that is in the past, come back to the now”. I am also going to acknowledge when my mind races forward to the future making plans and remembering what it is I have to do and say “that is in the future, lets live in the now for now”. I am hoping I can create a better future by leaving the past in the past and not trying to create the future before it has even happened yet. Live in the now and create an even better future, calm the mind by noticing the beauty that is all around us. It’s everywhere all we have to do is stop and see.
