"If you start living for the smallest reasons, that's when you know you're really living. The smell of rain after a thunderstorm, the shades of pavements when it's autumn, the harvest season and the unspoken competition to pick the freshest tomatoes, the mediocre midnights and the color of the sunsets, the smell of bakeshops early in the morning, the frosty breeze of the fast-approaching winter, the warmth of the oven when baking Christmas cookies, the thickness of paper when flipping through magazine pages, the smell of new books and new clothes and new things. When you start looking at things, really, really looking, you'll start living. Because then you'll understand how it is to really be a human in this world full of people." Author unknown.
I've recently begun to use this mantra - look for the beauty in nature. I found myself noticing the birds singing. The fragrance of the earth after a rain. The pond as ripples are made after a fish has swam through.
Looking at the beauty in nature calms me and helps me to feel more connected. The big thing, though, is that it helps me to feel like I am right where I should be at this time in my life AND that even more beauty and joy are still in store.
What helps you feel calm?
WHAT DO YOU DESIRE MOST?
I asked someone once what was the one thing she desired most of all. She answered, "A balance between the different areas of my life that makes everyone happy including myself."
What do you desire most of all?
What would that look like for you?
My new favorite app is Calm. I'm using the free version which allows me some meditation and some beautiful, relaxing nature sounds along with a video of a lake.
