Savor that Sunshine

Here it is...More from the Scrapster. Observations of the human race!   PEOPLE just need to relax more.  Life is NOT a race!  Each and every new day should be about living in the MOMENT...savoring that new bone… basking in the SUN that is shining through THAT window! 

Time is just too fleeting.  Do dogs have that figured out simply because SEVEN of our years equal  ONE of yours?  Maybe!

That thing you do...WORK..!? clouds up the day...along with all the OTHER scheduling of crazy things you do.  Here’s the way the day should go.   START out first thing in the morning with a YAWN!  Yep, don’t be afraid…Go ahead, great BIG yawn.!!  Then kiss  your someone special! And don’t FORGET that all important STRETCH.....long and ssssloooooow!  There it is, great BIG stretch!!   Then LEAP...yes...LEAP  (no more crawling and moaning..."I don't wanna get up!”)  Instead, be AMAZED and thrilled   that you WOKE up to another NEW day!   Leap out of the bed into the day with vigor and purpose! Then start out the day running!  

As for grooming… PEOPLE spend WAY too much time obsessing with the way they look.  Enough of that already!  Way too much fussing going on there…just accept YOU and get on with the day.  Mirror time is overrated!  Bathe less!  Smelling good comes best NATURALLY!

Always eat TWO good meals a day…and feel free to sneak in a snack now and then ... especially if nobody’s watchingdrink LOTS of  water…take vitamins IF someone says you should!  Take LONG walks, preferably EVERY day ( even if it rains or snows or blows!)  STOP to smell the flowers along the way, listen for the  songs  of the birds and chirps of the squirrels... the leaves rustling from the wind in the trees!  FOLLOW the path LESS traveled and dare to go DEEP into the woods and discover NEW things.  Be BRAVE, always (or at least act it!)  Set aside time to play amongst all that work you feel SO compelled to do throughout the day...but don't ever have an agenda.  Just pay attention to the little moments that make life BIG and listen for ALL the sounds of life, focus on the BEAUTY of it all and watch INTENTLY for THAT moment when the sun  FINALLY  shines through the window…
                                               Take your cue andthen just BASK in it!
