I credit my daughter for instilling a love for early morning rising. Before the sun is up, I am out of bed with energy to greet the day. Typically my morning commute consists of blaring my favorite Spotify playlist, fighting with Siri about who to send a message to or mentally planning my day. This week however, I unconsciously made a shift. My car rides have been silent. My head has been peacefully empty. And with this space, I noticed something small. The sun is now a co-pilot on my drives. Each day we have been receiving an earlier preview of the sun and each night a lingering trace of her light. Have you noticed? The more we simplify our lives, the more room there is for noticing the subtleties around us: not only in nature, but in each other and ourselves. Slow is sweet & less is more...this is my interpretation of living in the moment. When I am in this space, I am more sensitive to what I need to feel complete. My living is intentional versus habitual.
Although I crave the long days of summer, where it feels like the day will never end, I fully appreciate the now. Where each minute holds the possibility of beautiful change and more light.
