Take the time to look at a sunset. Life is short. There are so many little things and small pleasures that make this life worth living, take the time to enjoy them. Now that Spring is almost here, take the time to stop and smell the roses, or hyacinths, or whatever is in bloom as you go walking by, and don’t forget to look up. So many people spend their lives looking down and miss the glory of nature.
Also, take the time to stop and watch a sunset next time. If you are in your car, pull over and enjoy it. If you are walking, stop and watch. Wait for that last moment when the sky goes into its full colorful glory, then take a deep breath and smile. If you are up early enough, enjoy the sunrise and listen for that soft, still breeze that suddenly stirs at the turning of the tide. Enjoy!
