My purpose with this blog is to help others reduce stress and the amount of time spent on negative situations in order to increase happiness and have more peace in their lives, all the while, learning myself how to relax and enjoy life and those around me more. My ultimate goal is to learn to create and stay longer in the state of peace.
In keeping with this theme I thought I’d share with you just something cute that happened today. It is something so small that if I blinked I just might have missed it.
I was running very low on gas, for the sheer reason that I was being lazy about stopping. There were too many other things that had to be done today. When I finally pulled into the best place in town to get gas, I had 5 miles left in my tank according to the dashboard readout. My parents always called this, “running on fumes.”
I opened the tank and prepared to fuel up. When I placed the nozzle near the gas tank a white moth flew out from inside the compartment. It immediately made me laugh out loud. Typically the cartoons I’ve seen have been moths flying out of an empty wallet and other things that were empty. This was just priceless.
The reason I wanted to share was just a gentle reminder to stay in the moment. You never know when life, or nature in this case will throw a comedic moment at you to make something so mundane just a little bit better. It was if nature was trying to say, “slow down a moment and look at me!”
I am truly grateful for moments like this, however small and insignificant it may have seemed to others. I hope this will remind you to take time to notice what goes on around you and appreciate the simple moments.
What kind of things have you noticed lately that brightened you day that you otherwise would have missed if you weren’t paying attention?
