As I am getting older I am realising just how much time does really fly and there is absolutely nothing I can do to stop it. They key, as I am finding out, is to discover ways instead to slow it down. So how exactly do you slow life down? Well frankly, your guess and suggestions are as good as mine, but one thing I am finding that is helping is when I stop for moments during the day to find beauty in the small stuff. Seeing the reflection of the sun, the love between two strangers, the smell of freshly ground coffee, the sunrise as we drive home from morning exercise – it all makes me live in a moment and appreciate where I am at this exact time in the world. I think it’s safe to say we all live incredibly complex lives with 1000 things to do at any one time and brains that never want to switch off. With that in mind I have set out with a new ‘thing’ to never complain I don’t have enough time (after all there are 24 usable hours in every day) and to live more fully and present in each moment. I want to start a new weekly post where I share the lessons learnt or the quotes found that emulate this, and the images I take that sum up some of the moments I found the beauty in.
