Just For a Day

Just For a Day

Some days I just want to disappear for awhile.

I want a break from adulting.

A leave of absence from responsibilities.

I want to sit in peace with nature.

I want to stare, for hours, at the calmness of the glass like waters of a lake.

I want to watch a sunrise and sunset and make each one of them last for half of the day.

I want to lie on a blanket in the grass on a warm Summer day and into the night to gaze at the stars.

I want to stroll casually along with someone near and dear to my heart.

I want to spend hours in meditation with the warmth of the sun and a light breeze on my face.

I want to spend a day with animals, preferably my dogs and a horse who has stolen my heart.

I want to spend time with the few people who truly understand me.

I want to sip my morning coffee, while wrapped in a cozy blanket, sitting on a porch in an Adirondack chair, overlooking a lake.

I want to be free of worry and pain and filled with love and peace just for a day.

It’s The Little Things…

The stars in the sky on a clear night, so vast and beautiful.

The morning sunrises and the evening sunsets, the beauty in their colors.

The feel of a warm soft rain falling from the sky to become one with me

The changing of the Autumn leaves

The nakedness of a Might Oak once all of it’s leaves have fallen

The smell and feel of driving with the windows down on the first warm Spring day

The warmth of the sun shining down on me

The stillness of a lake on a Summer evening

The silence of a cold Winter night

The first snowfall of the season

The morning dew on blades of grass

The smell of fresh cut grass

The look of adoration in a lover’s eyes

The sound of a baby’s laugh, so pure and innocent

The beauty of a horse in canter

The beauty of connecting with a horse

The love of a dog, unwavering and unconditional

The practice of meditation

The serenity of time spent in nature

These are the little things, in my life, that bring me joy, peace, and hope.

These are the things that can turn a bad day into a better day.

These are the things that will, without fail, fill my heart and put a smile on my face.

These are the things that make all of the bad things worth surviving.

With Loving-Kindness ♥
