This week I took my camera along and tried to channel Alexa and notice things more. I want to be better at slowing down, counting my blessings and appreciating the little details that make life interesting and beautiful. This summer is flying by (did anyone else notice it was August already? Seriously. How did that happen). I wish life would just slow down a little.
But I think stopping to appreciate the details helps. When I slow down a bit, I realize how grateful I am. For breakfast in bed with my honey each day, for morning walks to work, for flowers in window boxes, for birds in the park, for this beautiful life I’m lucky to live. It’s a good one. I think I’ll keep it. And hopefully I’ll take the time to actually experience it instead of rushing through it like I sometimes tend to do.
