Every morning, I get a daily meditation sent to my email. I stumbled upon this site: Meditations for Women a few weeks back and it has since become part of my morning routine to read her daily email. It’s quick: only a small paragraph or two, but it really helps to start my day off with positivity, motivation and hope. I highly suggest you subscribe.
Here was what I read today:
“Stop the world and take in the beauty around you.”
Most of us are so involved with the tasks that must be accomplished by tomorrow, that we miss the beauty of today. Loveliness all around us gets taken for granted. We rarely look up from our daily tasks to appreciate the treasures of our environment.
Take a moment from your hectic schedule, and smell the flowers. Watch the graceful soaring of a kite or even marvel at the stars.
You’ll be surprised by the freedom you feel and the peace that it brings to your soul.
Today’s Affirmation: Each day I take a break to appreciate the beauty of my environment.
I don’t know about you, but this one really hit home for me. I am such a type-A personality and am always go, go, go, rushing to check things off my to-do list. Many times I do forget to just slow down and appreciate the moment that I’m in..the now.
So today I’m going to try and put today’s affirmation to work and just enjoy life. No planning, no to-do lists, just living and taking whatever path God leads me to.
I hope you all can take some time to LIVE today, too!
