Today is one of those perfect weather days. I can't seem to make myself go inside. I want to absorb every moment of it because I know it's fleeting.
It seems I'm always outside working these days but I'm hardly putting a dent in my to do list. While this yard is much smaller than our old suburban yard, it is much more work, at least right now while we work to right all the wrongs and tend all that had been untended.
It is ingrained in me to see what needs to be done rather than what has already been accomplished. I'm trying to fight that part of my personality, but I fear it may be a losing battle.
I want to notice the beauty that lies beyond the weed, rather than focusing on just the weed.
I want to take the time to notice the unexpected flower rather that focusing on the plants that need to be moved.
I want to see things with a new perspective and see the beauty in the detail, just waiting to be appreciated. I feel life slipping by so quickly these days and I want to live in the moment. Weeds and all.
