Tuesday Tip of the Day: Enjoy Every Moment

28 Jan

Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast – you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.

While the east coast was being rocked and socked by snow storms and frigid temps, it was a glorious warm sunny day in McKinney. You can’t waste a wonderful winter day like today. I got up early and went to Zumba with my neighbor, Diane. When I got home, I went for a long brisk walk, almost two hours. It’s late January, and I had a t-shirt on, no jacket. It was in the 70’s. Woo hoo!

By 5 o’clock, I was ready for another walk. I was going to soak up each second of sunshine, and enjoy all the sights and sounds of nature. Here are some fabulous photos from my walk.

After my walk, I sat on the front step with an iced tea, called my sister and chatted on the phone, and just watched the glorious sun set paint the horizon.

I did that today. I didn’t miss any scenery or a second of sunshine.

    You are absolutely right: we should enjoy every moment. Even though it’s winter and cold out here, the sun is shining and you inspired me to go out for a walk!

      I am thrilled that You were inspired to go out for a walk. My walks are a daily ritual where I get inspiration and meditate.
