“Miracles rest not so much upon a healing power coming suddenly near from afar, but upon our perceptions being made finer, so that, for a moment, our eyes can see——what is there around us always.”

–Willa Cather

We spend so much time caught up in our turbulent—disturbulent mindset, that we miss so much around us. How restorative to our mind/body/spirit to simply take a moment to bring our attention to whatever beauty is unfolding around us; to know we always have a choice about what we pay attention to, to break our habitual mindsets. Awareness is available to us always. It’s a muscle we can exercise just like any other. Ten minutes a day, anywhere you are; simply look around you in stillness, and breathe.
