Do we ever really stop and focus our awareness on the day? How many people knew that today was actually the longest day of the year? Have you ever woken up to watch the sun rise or have you taken the time to sit and watch the sun set?
Watching the sunrise is a beautiful event yet there are so many people that choose to miss it. One of my favorite things to do, when time will allow, is to start my morning run right before sunrise. There is so much peace in that time when you know most are asleep as you cruise down the road with just the sound of your feet hitting the pavement. If you’re lucky enough, there are no trees blocking your view of the amazing sun as it slowly rises up signaling a new day. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKusr6d_1-c[/youtube]
Each day presents an opportunity to put the events of yesterday behind….if you choose to look at it that way. We are given the chance to start fresh with our thoughts, with our interactions, with our choices, and with the peace we choose to have within. There is life – and there is stress. The two are, and should be, independent of each other. How many of you reading this form your sentence to say “My life is stressful”? Now how many of you can agree that it is the choices you have made or continue to make that create a stressful life for you? What is it that you are feeling deep within you that is driving you to make stressful choices for yourself that you would never wish upon your dearest friend?
A great thought to ponder while watching the next sun rise or sun set……..
