“It’s not only moving that creates new starting points. Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, an intentional pause and reset, or a new route to start to see new options and new possibilities.” – Kristin Armstrong
Take a field trip today.
No permission slip needed.
Go somewhere close, a place you pass each day but don’t notice.
A path into the woods, a bench by water, your back yard.
Look at the same and familiar with fresh eyes, open arms and listening ears.
This place, this timeout, this detour is where gratitude waits to be found.
Where the present moment resides.
Listen, look and receive.
Life is happening now amidst imperfections, distractions and delays.
Pause long enough to be in it and be quenched by enough.
Weave awe into the fabric of your life in the place you are right now.
“Silence is the pause in me when I am near to God.” – Arvo Part
