“Searching is half the fun: life is much more manageable when thought of as a scavenger hunt as opposed to a surprise party.” – Jimmy Buffett
At times we get stuck in the rut of our thoughts and circumstances. We wait for something to move us when we need to hunt up joy and light to get a new perspective, to get unstuck.
From the excitement of a squirrel pouncing from tree to tree to the delight of a leaf blowing down the path, Lily understands the bounty found in curiosity and attention to the very moment she’s in. Fully present with ears perked up and bounce in her step, she does not wait for adventure, she pursues it.
My happy little hunter emerges herself deep in the present, senses fully engaged in new sights, sounds and smells. She’s discovered that all that we need is close at hand ready to be captured by our hunting spirit.
