He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.
Albert Einstein

Are you looking at your world, at all the natural beauty available to you? Actually the more important question is, are you seeing it? 

Everyone gets caught up in the traffic, the dishes, groceries and misses the sunset, and even the rain. 

We are like robots, our daily story sounds like a 5 year old.....I got up, I went to school, I came home, I went to bed. There is much, much more all around you. 'I don't have time', really  doesn't cut it. I don't have time is an excuse, it's a matter of priorities. If you want to take time, there is time. You have the same 24 hours as everyone else.

There is more to life than work. Everything on the agenda seems to pertain to work. Whether it is the actual job, or dinner, house cleaning, doing the dishes, doing errands .... it's all toting and fetching. What has happened to family time? Or date night? Or anytime at all to simply enjoy your life and your surroundings. Two weeks a year, although better than nothing...do not a life make. Neither does getting your required exercise in the gym. We have the great outdoors, even if you don't have the woods in your locale, there is usually a park somewhere in the vicinity. Or take a drive to the country. Find a place that has grass, trees, flowers, or maybe find a beach. Take a look at the view, breathe some fresh air, doesn't that make you feel better? 

We all seem  to be so locked into our houses, our cars, our phones, TVs and computers. There is a whole world outside, not requiring electricity, to enjoy. Open your eyes and take it in... "I hope you never lose your sense of wonder, You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger. May you never take one single breath for granted." excerpt from I Hope You Dance-Lee Ann Womack
