You have been in a theater rehearsing for a performance for six hours, sweating, panting and running around. Rehearsal just ended. It’s time to go. You grab all your things and as you walk outside for the first time, you can see nothing but fog and a few twinkling streetlights in the distance. Your nose is filled with the moisture in the air. It finally feels like winter.
A couple nights ago, fog drifted down from the sky. It was the first time in so long that I have been in fog. Fog is my favorite thing to be in. Every time I took a breath, I could almost feel the tiny water molecules go into me. I love it.
Sadly where I live, it never snows and there is rarely fog or rain. So whenever there is fog or rain, I enjoy every second of it. I never realize how much I love and miss it until it comes back for the first time in a while.
Nature never ceases to amaze me.
Speaking of nature, I was on the Internet and I came across pictures of snowflakes zoomed up. They were so beautiful; it looked like someone hand carved them. They were so unrealistic. These were some of my favorites:
I found these necklaces on some social media and my heart burst with love. I love love love succulents and the thought of having them in a little necklace, was mind-blowing and wonderful. I couldn’t believe that a living thing could be worn as jewelry. How could something so small be alive?
As we go through our daily lives, we don’t pay attention to all the little things that are all around us. We are too busy with schoolwork or jobs or any extracurricular activities that we have and we don’t have time to look at snowflakes or succulents. Every once and awhile we need to stop, take a breath, and open our eyes. So much more is happening in the world around us than you think. Try it: notice something new.
