Upon waking this morning, I noticed the beautiful sunrise pictured above. I ran out and took some quick shots of it. None of them came out as I wanted them to, so I planned to take a couple more after my son’s bus left for school.
The thing about sunrises though, is that after a moment everything changes. From minute to minute, the sunrise takes on a different look. As I waited for his bus to leave, I kept watching the sunrise as it changed. This is what it turned into…
As I was watching it change ever so slowly, it reminded me of life. There are beautiful moments happening all around us, but they only last for a short time before they’re gone. If we sleep through life, these moments will pass us by, as if they were never there to begin with.
How many beautiful moments do we miss because of our worries, concerns and hectic schedules? Many times we are blinded by those things. They overwhelm us and limit our vision. But, we don’t have to let them. All we must do, is focus on what’s truly important. Then, we will see clearly.
There is a whole world out there beyond our own. Let us not sleep through life. Let’s awaken ourselves and cherish the beauty of the moment.
