I remind myself to do this, daily. Because there is so much to see.
It’s August and there are beautiful things everywhere. And in this strangest of all summers, I’m trying to take them in.
I am ridiculously, profoundly privileged to live where I live, where this vista is a 5 minute bike ride from our apartment.
I’ve been especially anxious these last few weeks. And it’s in times of anxiety that I know I need to exercise my “Stop. Look.” Because look at what you can find:
An avocado-emblazoned dressing with no avocado, apparently.
Also, my little guy in a perfect ray of light.
It’s a mindfulness practice I can do anywhere, anytime. No need to plan. No need to prepare. Just stop. Look.
