Today is the first day in many weeks that I’ve felt like I’ve had both time and space to relax, to slow down, to be… to just breathe.
I ate breakfast slowly. I ambled to the grocery store. I took my sweet time sipping a tasty coffee beverage. I casually selected a cart, and began gently pushing it along the floor. I looked at items that caught my eye. I smiled at store employees. I just la-la-la’d my way through my sometimes hustle-and-bustle grocery trip.
It felt wonderful. Really.
As I rounded the corner from the store’s main racetrack to the first aisle, I literally stopped in my tracks. I honesty-to-goodness did a double take. I stood, silent and stunned, for 1-2 full seconds. (Which is actually a long time when a person is out in public, around people who are moving.) And then, my brain caught up with my eyes, and I smiled, big-time.
Not only do *I* feel spacious today, but apparently the store does, too. See?
I was certainly not expecting to see this scene this morning; but I absolutely LOVE that my exterior world is truly reflecting my interior landscape.
It doesn’t get any more blatant than this. This is one heckuva ‘reminder’ that life really can be exactly how we approach it…
