I planted this flower in a very sunny spot quite a few months ago in hopes that I could enjoy it all summer. I watered it and encouraged it to grow but NOTHING!!
I continued to water it but didn’t really notice it anymore. I kinda gave up on it. For weeks I rushed passed it on my way out the door without given it a thought just focused on where I was going.
The other day as I pulled into the driveway I noticed it had FINALLY bloomed. I wondered how many days I missed seeing it’s beauty because I was too busy to stop and take a look.
Then I got to thinking about how we do this with the moments in our life. We get so busy rushing to the next thing that we forget to stop and enjoy the moment we are in.
The present is where true happiness lies. Focusing on the past often brings sadness and focusing on the future often brings anxiety. If we focus on truly being in the present moment that’s where the sweet spot is. That’s where we can truly let go and enjoy the ride!
