“Out of intense complexities intense simplicities emerge” – Winston Churchill
Life sometimes grabs you by the throat. Squeezing tighter, leaving you breathless and scrambling to find your way. Until something flickers inside your head. Does it have to be this hard? Is there another road to take? A new door to open and enter. To take yourself to the other side where the options are new and the answers are found. A place, thing or object where the peace will be new and enveloping.
And a light bulb goes off to all the problems that muddle your down and to just live in the moment. To breath the air and appreciate the beautiful surroundings that offer comfort. It is in this moment that life becomes simple and the answers are suddenly found.
The comforting smell of freshly brewed coffee. The small waves of the ocean. Immersing yourself in a good book. The text from a girlfriend just to say hello. The scent of rain on a warm winter’s day that makes it feel like spring. A chat with loving family.
Suddenly your feet feel lighter, your head feels stronger and your shoulders feel less burdened from not carrying the weight of the world.
The simple pleasures and enjoying the little moments is what life is about. Frees your soul and heart to know what is really important.
And on this Monday, and everyday, I will carry that with me.
