Stop to Wonder
Have you ever stopped at some point in your busy life just to look around you? So many people rush through life and miss all the tiny beautiful things by the wayside. Life can surround us with so many distractions: computers, cell phones, TV, iPods, etc, that we forget about the beauty just a glance away. Think about the colours of a butterfly's wings. They are so different they would clash if we tried to wear the same ones, but they blend so beautifully on the insect's wings that it takes your breath away. Or the stars in the velvety night sky. It is impossible to count them or capture their brilliance in anything. Even a diamond looks dull next to a star. People who are glued to their electronic devices can never really know the wonder of just how entrancing these luminous lights are. So if you are feeling stressed or sad, just take a moment to breathe and look around you. The loveliness of earth was created for you; you'll never be too busy to notice and let it amaze you.
