Take the time to stop just for you

If we were to stop what we are doing today and just look around at the world we live, see the beauty in our galaxy and the wonders of our universe; everything that we have going on today, the problems or deadlines, would just pale in comparison. I know how much our daily activities take over our lives and we find ourselves chasing our own tails rather than being in control of our journey. We are often reminded by a great tragedy or maybe just sitting with a child and listening to the way they see it, just brings back into focus what an incredible life we live.

The miracle of us just being on this little rock floating around in space amazes me to no end. How fragile life really is and how much we worry about, what in reality, is such trivial things. Probably 5 minutes after writing this someone will enter my office and my day will begin it’s usual roller coaster ride through the world of advertising. But everyday before that happens I sit drinking my coffee and look out the window and just wonder, ‘If for 5 minutes a day people would just think about the world we live in, maybe, just maybe the appreciation would spread into every aspect of our world.’

That quite moment can sometime be very profound. Sometimes you find yourself doing it without planning it but that breath you take just after that moment is so pure, so incredible it fills you with such a sense of optimism that it truly wipes away all the negativity in your life, even for just a moment. I hope you have more than 5 minutes of this today, I hope your entire life is filled with this, but if not, at least take 5 minutes to have all to yourself, after all you do, you deserve it.

  1. So true…it’s those quiet moments that refresh our spirit…so much of our lives are spent in perpetual motion and it’s so hard to just stop the merry-go-round. It’s great that you are able to grab those first few minutes of the day and prepare yourself for what the day will bombard you with. πŸ™‚ Have a peace-filled day. πŸ™‚ My fav pix: 2nd and 3rd in 4th row; and 2nd in 5th row.:)


    1. I pray you get enough quiet moments today πŸ™‚

      I think the picture of the girl with the tattoos is amazing. I’m not a huge fan of tattoos per se, but often they make someone look a little aggressive and the photography has really captured a serene, gentle side to this girl, wonderful! Take care Alan


  2. Your words here amaze me. And I got to stop and think, Alan is a true son of the Universe — he understands how it works and I’m so thankful for that for so many good reasons!

    Cute bread packaging! πŸ™‚


    1. & you are a star πŸ™‚ that sparkles in the world guiding people to a better place. I thank you as always! Take care Alan.
