Love it

At the end of January I was laid-off. It was the best thing to ever happen to me. For I’m now taking time to smell the roses; enjoying life, my days, my self.  

I love my mornings now spending breakfast chat time with my son and husband before school/work talking about just “stuff“. In fact, there are so many little things I’m appreciating so much more. Like my walks.  

After I drive my son to school I go to the beach for my morning walk. But my walks are different now, more relaxed and meditative, more thought provoking. Whereas before it was just part of my physical morning routine (though I always loved walking at the beach for its scenery and fresh ocean air). But now I FEEL my walks, my surroundings, my life. It’s my reflective journey every morning. I see things that I haven’t before, like the people that look familiar on my walks but I don’t know. I wonder what goes on in their lives; what challenges they‘re going through, etc. I’ve started to notice them in a way I hadn’t before, I even say hello to all of them as I pass them by. My walks now have helped me to see more clearly, to smell the roses, to appreciate all that surrounds me in my life. And I can even see the little squirrels that hide in the brush along my walk path. I never knew they existed before now. They peek out as I walk by as if to say hi or good morning. It's wonderful that I see these little squirrels now! estatic

Love it
