Sunrise

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.”
― Jo Walton

Experience life. When is the last time you sat and saw the sunrise? I mean, really sat down, enjoyed your cup of coffee and maybe the company of a spouse or loved one, or just you .. and watched the sunrise?

I’ve been waiting for it since 0315. When the sky starts to get lighter and lighter .. and then it seems, if I am not paying attention (more often than not because I am getting things done) I miss when the light splits the sky into subtle daylight. It seems to happen in a moment .. and it does. We can miss so much of the beauty of life that the Creator made for us in our own daily routines. Take some time to soak in the environment around you today .. and just listen .. be still .. and think.

“There’s always a story. It’s all stories, really. The sun coming up every day is a story. Everything’s got a story in it. Change the story, change the world.”
― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

Change something about your daily routine. When is the last time you got up and watched the sunrise? The importance isn’t even so much as in doing something new here, but doing different things that make you stop and think and listen and be still. These are things that will propel you forward. We as humans get very wrapped up in routines – break yours up today. 🙂
