We are on a journey, and there is an implication that this means movement, from one place to another, one activity to another and maybe as fast as we can. It is part of who we are and how we roll and yet it might be that there is more that we can get from our journey when we take a moment, even in the midst of all that we are doing, to stop and see what is around us. It could be a stop for an espresso while on a bike ride, a visit to a friend on the way to the store, sitting in the park while walking the dog, or so many other ideas where we just slow down a bit to enjoy what is around us. It feels good and taps into a different kind of energy that comes out only when we take a moment and stop to appreciate where we are and what we are doing. So, let’s make it a goal and see if we can do this more often than not. The return on time will be quite good and we will be happy that we did it.
