another day in the Kowie. Sun is rising over the sea, a fresh winter breeze is blowing off shore and the sea is huge.
The seasons are changing. The change is so gradual one barely notices unless you are aware of the surroundings. The old people would try predict the upcomming season by the subtle changes they saw in the trees, birds and animals. Nowdays we live life fast, quick decisions, we rely on TV or Google to tell us what is going to happen or what to do. The news is always predicting doom and gloom, financial crisis, car bombs, natural disasters. Yet for each one of us as indivuduals we are very seldom directly affected by the goings on in the world, yet we live in fear that we next, that it could happen to us.
I choose to live differently, to watch the sun rise as it has done for millions of years over this very beach,I choose to make a positive difference to the people I bump into today. I choose to change a little for the better today. Slowly, like the change of a season, I plan to get a little better at being me each day, to be more aware of who I am, to listen to my heart, to follow my dreams. There is no mistake that I find myself right here right now.
I am on my journey taking in the sights and sounds, sometimes the journey is bliss and I am so caught up in the moment that when I look again I have grown without effort. Othertimes the road is hard, the going is slow, I have time to think through each step, I can step away from the path, sometimes I need a break and I just sit on the side of the road.
Today is filled with joy and oppertunity, my challenge is to go out and find it. What are you looking for today? Whatever it is you are sure to find it along the way.
