Standing on the steps at my front door, I notice a big fat bumble bee. He is a busy bee indeed, going from flower to flower crawling around inside each flower for a second and then on to the next flower.
I am totally engrossed in the beauty of this moment. Time stands still. The purple of the flowers become more vivid and the beauty of the moment overtakes my senses. I feel the heat of the sun on my face intensify. A cool breeze removes the heat and it feels wonderful as it passes. My hair tickles my forehead.
The bumble bee leaves the flowers and buzzes around me before he flies off.
Moments like these are always happening, but when you take time to stop and notice them the joy from childhood returns. There are no ordinary moments in life. You’ve just been missing them.
HOMEWORK: Take a moment today to watch and to listen to this wonderful world we are passing through. Really watch and listen without judgement. Become engrossed in the moment. It doesn’t matter where you are, there is a beauty to life everywhere and inside every single thing.
These are the moments that make life special. It’s hard to remember, but you used to live from one amazing moment to the next when you were a child. Everything was new and exciting.
The only thing that has changed since then is you.
Enjoy the moment.
Enjoy being alive.
