A Little Something New

The sun pours down on me on this hot summer morning. The rays throwing themselves over my skin and I feel all of the tension from the past week slowly leave my body. It is only 11 o’clock and at least 80 degrees and I can’t think of a better place to be. Here drinking coffee (my number one obsession) looking out onto the hills of the valley I live in. I think sometimes we get so caught up in our lives that we forget to take in our surroundings. Does anyone else feel that way? I find myself doing this on the daily, forgetting where I am, forgetting what is around me. I think we all know how busy our lives are – we are human beings after all! But doesn’t it just sometimes feel like we fill our days with things we think we would enjoy rather than what we actually want to do? To be more in tune with one’s body and as cliche as it sounds, be in touch with our feelings. To take an hour or so maybe even thirty minutes every few days and remember to get back in touch with ourselves. That is my goal for this summer! Any other helpful tips?
