simple things.

I walk almost everyday. Usually 2-3 miles in the morning and occasionally some in the evening.

The route is typically the same. But every time, I see something new.

Sometimes, it is a new wildflower that bloomed. Sometimes, it’s just the way the sun is shining. Clinging dew drops sparkle in morning sun. Flowers softly glow in the afternoon.

Life is like that.

How does the light shine on your life? Do you even notice?

Because even on cloudy days, the familiar can take on a subtle, yet beautiful appearance. Colors feel more meaningful against the gray.

Let the simple things quiet the complicated things that crowd into your thoughts.

Simple things make you peaceful.
