Several months ago my priorities had to be rearranged, and writing disappeared from my daily ‘get-to-do’ list. Finally, it’s time to ‘speak’ once again, and share what’s happening in the world I am privileged to share with so many amazing people.
The last few months have been catalytic, with many changes inside and out. This picture captures the essence of the joy that awaits me each morning during my daily hour swim in the sea, the waves I swim through spinning all of us around to once again greet the morning sun.
Everyday I’m reminded that rising to meet the Sun and watching from the sea as Mother Earth spins us into her life, and spirals us away from its influence 12 hours later, is a gift to be opened and appreciated, never taken for granted.
While the old saying “Don’t sweat the small stuff, and remember that everything is small stuff.” is true, what’s far truer for me is how important it is to appreciate the small stuff, realising so often how it is that what seems small and insignificant is often essential to our lives, and the quality of our lives.
Who or what do you appreciate today?
