It’s been quite a while since I have written a post on here for my website.
I nearly called this post “Busy Life” instead of “Making Time”, however I thought the first title was more fitting.
The reason that I say this is that most of us have busy lives to contend with, so having a busy life can’t be used as an excuse. It’s about slowing down and making the time to do the things that matter.
As I sit here and type these words, I am waiting to have an operation on my knee for a split cartilage, not a major operation by any means, however one that has made me slow down and appreciate things.
As I look out of my ward window, I have become really aware of how green and wonderful the trees look; as they intermingle with each other and the landscape, I have a sense of really appreciating nature; I have become aware of the clouds, the sky and just how everything is connected and fits together.
These few moments have reminded me just how much everything really is connected, how everything has a role and a part to play in nature and the positive effects that this as on us as human beings.
I have really become aware of my 5 senses, sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. I truly feel that I have understood and acknowledged just how important they are and much they help me to live in the present moment.
So much so; that I feel compelled to write this down and share with others, so they too can remind themselves to slow down and make some time for themselves and enrich the qualities of their lives and those around them.
