I love the rain. I love waking up to a room with just the right amount of darkness. I enjoy listening to the sound of raindrops falling gently on the rooftop, as if making sure it doesn’t disturb anyone as it makes its landing. I like how all of a sudden my room feels so cold, making it impossible for me to fight the urge to just snuggle my pillows and go back to sleep.
I was on my way to work this morning when I noticed how radiant the colors of the plants in the garden are. The droplets of water resting on the petals and leaves were like glitters that made them glow, even with the little amount of sun.
It’s always nice to take some time off our busy schedules and allow ourselves to be wowed by the beautiful things that have been there all along, waiting to be noticed. I found comfort while twisting and stretching my limbs to get good angles; it’s been a while since I’ve done that.
When I saw how the photos turned out, my heart was really happy. It’s as if the plants were telling me to stop worrying too much because everything will be fine. I guess when you allow yourself to listen to what God or what the universe wants to tell you, the message is heard with so much clarity that it travels from your ears to your mind and heart.
Most of us are too scared to take a break because we think about the money that we’ll lose. What we don’t realize is that we gain so much and we give so much to ourselves just by taking some time off our daily routine. We say we live only once. The beauty around us will only live once, too.
