This morning was the usual chaotic craziness in our house. Our youngest had been awake since 4am and despite being exhausted she refused to go back to sleep until 7.30, when our three year old decided to wake! It amazes me how, despite often being awake since the very early hours, we still seem to rush in a panic to get to nursery, work, childrens groups or meetings. This morning was no different and after rushing to get my daughter to nursery on time, I then rushed homeward ready for a hectic mornings work.
As I was heading back I glimpsed the beautiful blue, still sea and decided to take my morning coffee break on the beach instead of hastily drinking at my desk, whilst checking emails. I only stopped for ten minutes, but those moments of stillness made me feel invincible & extremely fortunate. My mood lightened & my day was far more productive than normal. Just taking a short moment to appreciate the beauty in the world and slowing the pace of life down seems like a perfect way to start the day everyday and I plan to find the time to do exactly this every morning from here on in.
