As I left work today there was a sunset over the lake with beautiful golden-rose colored clouds. I couldn't help but pause for a moment and admire the beauty - ahhhh, what a sight! Can't you just feel yourself relax and soak up the warmth and positive energy? That's how it feels to me. What is it about a beautiful sunrise or sunset that makes it so captivating? When I'm lucky enough to catch one it feels like my soul is being recharged and I can't help but stop and drink in the beauty.
To often I'm hurrying from one thing to another and I hate to think about all those wonderful little moments I've missed because I didn't take time for them. There's a saying I've heard that goes something like this, "Life isn't about reaching your destination, it's about enjoying the journey along the way." When I see a pretty sunrise/sunset, it's a reminder to me to stop and enjoy the beautiful moments in life as they happen - to soak it all in and enjoy the ride.
Here's a beautiful sunrise over Padre Bay at Lake Powell. Ahhhh!
