It’s not easy to stop and observe when life is so busy and stressful. But I’ve been encouraged lately to do just that, in two ways. One, to help me not to overreact to situations, is to observe that something has happened, acknowledge it, and try to put it in perspective, rather than blow it out of proportion. The other way, which feeds the first, is to just have a moment and observe what is going on around you, even during a stressful day.
Not that today was stressful, but I had a few minutes where I and a couple of clients were waiting for the van to pick us up. We were sitting in rather a pretty area, so it was nice to just chill a bit. Taking photos probably ruins the moment a bit, but I couldn’t help myself.
