How fortunate am I to live where I do. While hiking I stopped to take a look straight up from the base of this tree. I don’t know what made me do it….curiosity I guess? What a great idea it turned out to be. It was amazing what I could see. So many different colors, textures, smells, sensations. When I just STOPPED and took a moment to soak up my surroundings and really tune into the environment I realized JUST how blessed I am. The tree helped me block out the technological world of cell phones, computers, tv’s fitness trackers, machines, vehicles, airplanes trains I could go on forever…it was a moment in time where I could block out the world and still see the blue sky. Through all the clutter, the noise, busy-ness, I could still hear the birds, feel the breeze and take in the scent of outdoors. My cup was filled. What do YOU do to refill your cup?
