The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Have a Moment
I invite you to "have a moment" today. The kind of moment when you think to yourself, "Ya know, things aren't so bad…actually things are pretty good." I had one of these moments last week. I was stressed out or worrying about something (I honestly can't remember what it was,) and I went outside with Woody the Dog. My head was fuzzy, but beginning to clear as we walked down a big hill and saw the blue sky lighting up over the pond.
We walked down to the pond. Woody was immediately interested and took a drink and floated along for a minute. He took off and rooted around the cattails. I stood and looked at the reflections in the water. I sat down on the ground in my dirty blue jeans. As I sat there, things were beginning to lighten up, as they always will--if we let them. I noticed the dragonflies buzzing around. I watched as a single Cottonwood leaf cascaded into the pond. I noticed the perfect October day, warm--but not hot. The clouds in the sky. It all came into focus--the beauty of it all. I was Having a Moment. Then Woody sat down about five feet away and he just gave me this cool and relaxed look. And there we were.
