taking time


You know life is good when you can feel productive watching your tea leave uncurl. There is something so satisfying in knowing that even with all the things I should/could be doing I have taken these 3 minutes all to myself simply to watch the unfolding.

I feel sometimes as if in these still moments more gets done than if I was rushing about.

So just for today, I encourage you to take a moment all for yourself to simply observe. Whether you copy me and watch your tea leaves expand, rain running down the window, leaves dancing in the wind, an insect pollinating flowers, the clouds, the people walking by... whatever you can, just sit and be caught up in the activity.

Maybe you'll find a lot has changed in that simple act of observation and you'll see the world in a whole new way. If only for today. I wish you delight in stillness.
