I decided to play around with this idea to see if the world keeps spinning. I assumed it wouldn’t, but risked it anyway… In March, while I was on spring break from teaching and home with only my three-year-old, I decided to pause numerous times throughout the day to “be still.”
More of my inspirational finds here.
Some days scream by and I hardly have time to eat my meal, and other days seem to more naturally beckon me to be still. But either way, it doesn’t matter – there are no rules to this. I just know, when I still my mind, I’m more fully present. It’s as if the shades are taken off my eyes and I can see all the goodness around me. (Until my toddler spills his milk plunging me back into reality.)
But, between those chaotic moments – there is so much beauty – sometimes, we just need to be still and see it.
