Today dawned a beautiful sunshiny day. I made myself a promise to soak up every bit of it, to take the time to really be present. There was yoga class and a brisk walk in the green space.
Afterwards I sat in a sunbeam on the back porch with a refreshing drink and a book. It was as close to a perfect moment as I have had in awhile.
I had this sweetheart for company. And she had her ball. Everywhere I looked today I saw yellow. Little reminders to make the most of this unexpectedly warm day because who knows what tomorrow will bring. Little reminders that when I take the time to notice the details, the little things, it changes me. I feel happier, more at peace and thankful for every bit of this life.
Today I did something I don't often do. I took time to take care of me without guilt! That is a very hard thing for me to do. I don't know why. I'm just not wired like that. The thing is, I'm just starting to realize how good that is for my soul and that when I give to myself, it turns out I have more to give to others. You have all probably figured this out already but I am a late bloomer. Or maybe I am blooming in just the right season for me.
