Be Good to Yourself!

Image used courtesy of: Jan Tik.The other day I watched one of the most picturesque snowfalls. It reminded me of the type of snow shower we wish for on Christmas Eve. Those soft, heavy snowflakes gently floating down covering pine trees in such an awesome display of majestic quietness. 

For at least 10 years, I’ve worked in a basement office with no windows. The drive home is spent focusing on dealing with road conditions, traffic and a driveway in need of shoveling. Upon returning home from work, darkness begins to settle leaving little chance to see the beauty of a heavy snowfall.

We tend to become so caught up in the moment; we often fail to see the beauty around us. It reminds me how much I’ve missed over the years by not taking the time to recognize how marvelous something simple can be. We scurry through our days and years until we become a stranger to outside stimuli. We place ourselves in a loop, unable to stop long enough to notice what we’re missing or even care.

Maybe it’s time we change our minds? Instead of viewing everything as a “push” to get through the moment, maybe we need to spend more time with an open mind. The daily clutter manages to clog our brain with lots of negative and uncreative thoughts. We need an escape plan.

Let’s take the time to enjoy our families, surroundings and life. Put the rat race on hold and give yourself quality time to take a deep breath and observe the very things we take for granted. Separate yourself from conflict, drama and noise.

Be good to yourself.
