Sometimes, when I take some time to just sit still, it hits me how beautiful everything is. It's a silly realisation. Of course, the things have always been beautiful. And it's silly that I give myself things to do every part of the day. I don't allow myself to do nothing. Mostly it is nature that gives me the reminder. Trees, birds, the sun or the rain. And friends, love. Music.
This morning I sat in the sun on our roof. Eating my breakfast and watching the birds. I watched a pair of sparrows fly on and off to feed their babies. Watching them made me feel so peaceful and full of love.
Sometimes you see, hear or feel something that suddenly opens your heart up a bit. "Opening the heart" is not just a series of pretty words, it is something you can actually do, like walking and singing. I want to do some more heart-opening.
