Life is what is happening to you right now, not what happened yesterday or what might happen tomorrow. Astress_sunflowers_relax_kidspeacend the last thing you want to do is miss it.

 

Did you rush of to work this morning without really taking the time to taste that cup of coffee?

 

Did you rush through washing the dishes and miss what was going on in the yard right outside your kitchen window?

 

Taking the time to realize what you are doing, when you are doing it, is a key facet of slowing down and living a simpler life. But even more important is just taking the time to BE, at least once a day – taking it all in, enjoying the quiet, watching the clouds or enjoying a cup of your favorite tea while resting your body. Start enjoying the simple things in life.
