Today I hung out at the beach with my boys. It was just the 3 of us with no friends, and no phone (I left it at home) ie no distractions!
I asked them, as we lay in the sun, what they could hear... the wind and the waves. We listened. I asked what they could see... Sand, water, birds, clouds. We watched. I asked what they could taste... Watermelon and crackers (standard beach snacks 😉). We ate! Could they smell anything... They couldn't, but they sniffed for all they were worth. 😁
And finally what could they feel? The sand on their toes and the sun on their backs. ☀️
I tell you what I could feel... Peace. And presence!💙 I wasn't thinking about the errands I needed to run or emails I needed to respond to or the house work I needed to do. My head was totally on us, at that beach!
And in a week of last minute to dos and stressful shopping centres, this is the time when a feeling of being completely present in a beautiful moment, is most welcome. .
You should try it sometime! ✌️ Like... tomorrow. And everyday until the 25th. Especially on the 25th! ✝️ .
This is the 'most wonderful time of the year'. Enjoy every minute. 😘
