Mindfulness Monday – Earth Day

Love the world
as your own self;
then you can truly care
for all things. 

Lao Tzu

Just feel the magic in the air and the power in the breeze,
Feel the energy of the plants, the bushes and the trees,
Let yourself be surrounded by nature at its best,
Calm yourself, focus and let magic do the rest.

Sally Walker

In all things of nature
there is something of the
marvelous.

Aristotle

The days are so beautiful this time of year, urging us to come outside and linger, yet we often get so distracted by everything going on inside that we miss what mother nature is trying to tell us. My allergies are keeping me indoors more than I’d like, but I’m taking time to sit by my window each day and taking note of how my surrounding are changing, each day seems to bring a new bloom, a new color. The flora in the desert is much different than I’m used to on the east coast. there, there are so many blossoms it is hard to appreciate the individual plants, the individual blooms. Here flowers are often found alone, or in small groups, but the blossoms are often bright and beautiful and standing out in all their glory. I can look across a field and see a single flower blooming that I know was not there the day before, it is wondrous. The cactuses are starting to bloom and that is just amazing! I hope all of you can take some time and take a nature break.

      1. You never need to apologize for being away. I am quite often AWOL myself.
        I hope you are feeling better.
        I’m so glad you can enjoy the weather no matter what it brings. 💕

    1. Oh Wendi, the green. It’s different here. It amazes me just how different the landscape is in different places. When I was a child I never would have thought that there were places that didn’t have fields of grass. There is such diversity on our earth, the landscape and it’s people. What state are you in? Are you having tornados? It’s starting to get hot in Tucson already.

  1. Sorry I’m a bit late catching up with this. I’m sorry your allergies are ramping up at the moment but it’s great you’re seeing it as an opportunity to look through the window & appreciate what’s out there. More regular nature breaks could do us all a world of good I think 🌷
