I hope you enjoy this short and sweet little reminder to come back to the present. So many distractions pull us away from the present. Yet if we pay attention, we can notice the little details that make life lovely.
Remember when you didn’t strive for the future? You lived in a state of constant wonder.
If you listen, those everyday wanders are calling you to come back and be in the present.
The steam dancing as it rises from your cup of tea, colors, tastes, the aroma of coffee, the taste of fruit, and the soft grass under your feet, the wind on your skin, the texture of bark, the patterns of flowers, the ever-changing shape of clouds, the butterflies in your stomach, your pounding heart, the sound of laughter, the child’s smile that lights up a room – these everyday wanders call you to come back.
You miss life when you are so caught up in your thoughts, in thoughts of a future that never arrives and in thoughts of a past that’s already been.
Life is the everyday moments. Come back. Listen. Notice. Pay attention because life will only ever be here now in the precious gift of the ever-unfolding present moment. Come back.
