Life gets complicated. So many decisions and issues to deal with. I don't know about you but there are times I'm like a fluff of cotton caught in the whirlwind blown here and there. My head is so full of stuff that everything blurs around me. It's a rough ride with no time to really look around. 

There are times I must fight my way out and just savor the beauty of a moment in time. Stop and anchor myself to the now. Look around and see the beauty that surrounds me. Let go of all the must do issues and just be. You'd think that would be easy but it's not always. Sometimes I have to give myself permission to step off the platform of the whirlwind and just let it move on for awhile.

An afternoon on the trail

I did that on Sunday afternoon. Took the time to breath in fresh scent of the grass, visit with my animals, listen to the wind and the call of the birds. Watch the shadows of the sun crawl across the pastures. Just be in the moment. I could feel the tightness unwind from inside and awareness of my surroundings unfurl and soothe me. I needed that.

These moments are ones to savor. They make you glad you're alive.

How do you find the moments to unwind? What do you do to make it happen?
