Most of us survive by focusing on the big picture. We’re watching traffic, following world events, planning the next shopping trip, scanning the email. The minutes of our lives whiz past while our attention is elsewhere.
Sometimes we just need to focus, and breathe.
Life is now.
We find our greatest peace and happiness in this moment
when we focus on something beautiful,
something that brings a smile to our eyes
and a sweetness to our lips.
Focus intently and truly see.
Enjoy the intricate detail
The perfect balance
Like Horton, watch and listen-
hear the wings of the hummingbird,
See the stamens of a flower,
and find yourself, in this moment.
