It seems like we are always busy these days. We jump in our cars in the morning and hurry off to work. We drive as fast as we can to get to the interstate, get on the faceless ribbon of vehicles that takes us to our places of business. We sit inside a building for eight or more hours. Then the process reverses. We get back onto that faceless ribbon and hurry home to cook supper, watch tv, unwind or go to the gym. Weekends are filled with taking our kids to club soccer games, travel baseball, travel softball, chorus, gymnastics, cheerleading and the lists go on and on.
We're always in a hurry but we're like hamsters on a wheel not getting anywhere and the scenery never changes.
Let's all take a breath, slow down, look around and explore the world around us. You don't necessarily have to have a lot of free time or extra money. Get off the interstate once in a while, notice your surroundings, find beauty in ordinary things, see the world for how it really is, not how the News portrays it. You'll see that things are not really that bad.
