SOL Day 16 – Keep Looking Up

 photo 2 (2)

I’ve been struggling with a lot of things in my personal life lately. Big life changes and decisions have never been my strong suit and my life seems to be filled with them at the moment. This has led to many a sleepless night and frayed nerves…in short, I’m a bit of a wreck.

Tonight as I went out to enjoy the beautiful spring air and soak up the last of the vitamin D, I made a point of looking up. Big picture, life is good. I’m healthy, I live in a gorgeous neighborhood in a lively city, and some days the vistas are breathtaking (see above). I’m glad I decided to look up. To see the wisps of cloud cross the sky. To take in the sun’s rays. To watch the birds take flight. And even when I was looking down, I couldn’t escape nature’s beauty. To see the tulips blooming. To take in the new green of spring. To watch the squirrels scurry on their way.

While things aren’t magically fixed from my venture outside, I was reminded to keep looking up and that is what I intend to do.

  1. I love how you looked up on the outside and knew it was healthy for your inside. I often find spending time outside allows my brain to hear and notice things. Things that take my mind in new directions and gives it a rest from what is wearing me down. Keep heading outside and looking up.


  2. I feel for you but know that, by keeping the big picture in mind and remembering to look up to appreciate all there is in the world, this too shall pass. Life is good and you can’t be as much of a wreck as you think if you’re managing to keep with the Slice of Life challenge! Good for you! Thanks for sharing.
