This morning, as I was on my regular 6:30am bike ride, I saw a gorgeous sunrise. The sun went from purple, to pink, to orange over the course of my ride. But, you know what? You’ll have to trust me. I didn’t stop to take a picture. I just rode and enjoyed the view. I was totally in the moment and it was really nice. 🙂
Sometimes I think you really just have to do that. Be in the moment. Whether it’s enjoying a gorgeous view or spending time with family/friends. I feel like we get so caught up in social media and posting the cool stuff in our lives, we forget to enjoy it. Or maybe we want to project a certain image to the world or to our friends.
Don’t get me wrong. I post my fair share of pretty pictures! Maybe more than my fair share. But! Every now and then… Just kick back and enjoy. With all of us dealing with more and more stress, I think you can benefit from enjoying a moment or a view. I am also a proponent of unplugging every now and then. I don’t have to answer every email immediately. I don’t have to respond to a Facebook post within a few minutes. I guess what I’m really trying to say (in a horribly roundabout way) is that it’s ok to occasionally be in “BRB kthxbai” mode. 🙂
