STOP!!! Take just five minutes to look around. Look up, look down, look all around and be present in the moment and place where you are at. To notice the life taking place around you. Say hello and have a nice day to the person to the left and right of you.
This image is something I saw when out for a walk with some friends. All it took was to stop and look up, to notice the sky above me. To notice something other than ourselves and the narrow view we have, and to appreciate the world all around us, this I think would go along way to making the world in which we live a much better place.
This I also think is an example of being where you are is just as important as some other place. We often think that somewhere else is better, that the grass is greener over there. That the view is nicer and we would be happier seeing it from that place. I know I am guilty of this, oh man am I. But there is something to be said for appreciating what you have and where you are.
