Counting our blessings

I woke up at four past seven this morning and heard three squirrels scurrying, five excited birds and numerous leaves blowing in a slight breeze. I almost missed all this.

Upon waking, I was inundated with tasks I needed to execute that day. I counted six concerns and eight follow-up tasks requiring my attention. I even wasted nine uncomfortable seconds worrying about something before I remembered it had been resolved. Essentially, I was ignoring the world around me because of the lists in my head.

Those ten lovely minutes hearing the world provided one rather positive impact on my day. Not appreciating our environment is easy. Why not take a moment and respect the world around us?
