Soak up each sight, each moment!
The light is changing;
I’m noticing it, and oh it reminds me that summer has quickly found us and just as quickly is leaving us!
That beautiful light is changing and I am even noticing the evening light being replaced by night fall a bit sooner each night now.
Just as I enjoyed those Kangaroo Paws
it seems that fall is trying to jump in on us and once again take us by surprise!
Some will welcome it I am certain as we see parents and grands preparing to send the kids back to school!
Once again to the
“rise and shine”
and out the door for structure and education; the yellow buses will fill the roads, and homes will be quiet once again during the day time hours along with neighborhoods where the sounds of laughter and glee of splashing in the pools and activity in the hoods will stop during the day time.
We will hear the winds of parents and grandparents and caregivers;
exhaling that ole’ sigh of relief once the kids are back in school once again!
Just as we hear the daily commuters sigh the not so happy “grunt” as traffic jams increase with the yellow buses and those who have to transport the littles to and from the schools adding to the daily rush hour traffic!
it is almost that time of the year!
First time college students getting ready to spread their wings to fly to the big time of campuses local and far away,
life in the real lanes of education and a whole new world awaits.
One where there is no bell or principal to govern their every move,
but a time of independence to take over and self motivation and responsibility to show up and show out
Just last year seniors who “ruled the hallways”, now nameless faces walking and trying to figure things out on their own without their peer group,
finding that they are one person who must find the strength to stand on their own merit and tell time on their own, while standing UP with the desire to learn and make the grade, whether playing sports or purely getting what they need to make the grade!
the light is changing.
We see the best and the brightest adults who are giving all they have for all the right reasons getting treated poorly by owners of businesses and organizations
and wonder, how why when will people get it.
Life is much like the flowers at the top of this blog.
Fragile, beautiful and individual.
Filled with the unique ability to produce greatness and splendor.
Not made to just be, but to be nurtured and watered to grow.
Treated kindly we all should be and should treat others.
In our daily lives and work place, home life and on daily encounters.
What we put out, we get back.
Seems rather simple actually.
Just like our cars we drive that perform well for us, if we do our regular maintenance and oil changes, runs great in all weather and all conditions.
We are mindful of that.
Perhaps we need to make others mindful that we too are in need of care, of good treatment to enhance our performance, our stylin and performance.
We just grin and drive off in class and style, knowing that we did our best and continue the journey the best way we know.
Yes, the light is changing,
enjoy each moment, each day.
Find something special in you and this day that brings you joy,
that makes you feel almost giddy!
Enjoy a good story,
make one up
star in it,
be the one of wonder
OUTSHINE THE SUN
Here’s to your wildest dreams,
your most beautiful realities
wishing you a day
of getting your feet wet in the wonder
of your life!
We are never too busy to take the time for self amid the madness of life! Find time for you, find time to play, to wonder, to reset your happy button!
Blessings on the suns rays
