Inspiration Everywhere


I have been so busy the past couple of weeks,  being consumed by so many things that I started to feel as my heart was put in a bottle ... I've got caught up in my busy schedule that I've slowly stopped noticing the world around me. Yes, I felt like I was  losing my mindfulness, wrapped up in my own hectic fast-paced life that kept me from being aware of the bigger picture around me .... and it has happened as impalpable as a dream.
The most scary thing for me has always been losing the wonder, the curiosity, the thought of the world.
But I learn how to get my heart back out of the bottle:
Become Present 
Center the attention to notice the beauty in small things!
Look for inspiration - it can happen everywhere; it can be literary everything, because everything is 
I would do myself a favor as I walk through life: I am promising to myself to slow down and take the time to wonder and dream, to look for the things that put a smile on my face and summer on my steps,
to keep the bottle empty,
 but my heart full ...

Dear Friend, take a moment to see  what is going on around you right now , right where you are . You might be missing something wonderful.

Take delight in the simple things !
Thank you !
