As a gardener, I think I am always looking for what's blooming next. What's budding. What's doing well. What didn't work. What did better last year.
Sometimes I think I look right past what's blooming now.
I think we do the same in life.
Always looking for what's next.
What's to come.
What the future holds.
Or what happened in the past.
What will be next?
What about now?
What about what's happening right this very second in your life?
Stop. Be present.
Savor your life.
Taste the sweet peach. Let the juices run down your chin.
Feel the sun warm on your back.
Listen to the birds sing their sweet song.
Smell the roses.
Listen to the wind in the trees. Really hear it.
Feel the breeze on your neck.
There's beauty all around us.
All you have to do is see it.
