Whilst I was talking with someone about all the things that were going on in my life someone said to me “life’s not simple”.
They were right. Life is not simple, it is complex and messy and confronting. It is also rapidly changing and sometimes downright scarey.
But that is not all it is.
It is also beautiful and awe inspiring; exhilarating and wonderous.
The challenge is to notice those moments too.
I wonder how you would feel if you can turn off the news, stop reading the paper, make your favourite drink, find a quiet spot and sip.
Take the time to find the simplicity, notice the beautiful.
