If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things in nature have a message you understand, Rejoice! for your soul is alive!
Sometimes amongst the chaos of our daily lives: getting up, going to work, taking your kids to daycare, trying not to spill your coffee as you run out the door, honking horns, too many commuters, late trains, over-packed trains, clients, bosses, staff meetings, etc., it’s nice to find a garden in bloom reminding you that, life does give you permission to pause!
But of course you have to take the time to notice. Give yourself the gift of taking a break!
Why not pleasure your eyes with all the beauty and color around you?!
During my working days, I was always really good at saying, “I don’t have time!” to take even 5 minutes to go outside and enjoy the fresh air and natural world. But now that I’ve had time to reflect, I realize I did have the time; I just didn’t give myself the permission to take a break.
Life isn’t about how many hours we’ve worked in a day, but about the moments we choose to give ourselves during the day.
Happy Spring from NYC!
- Make a note to yourself how different you feel on the days you take a break versus the days you don’t.
- Your health and well-being are going to give you a more fulfilled life–filling your life with busyness that doesn’t make you happy deters your health, So
- Pause and soak up the colors of nature and life!
Blessings, Erin, Bella Bleue
