Some of my favorite mornings are spending quiet solitude in a beautiful setting. On this particular morning I remember the air feeling so cool against my bare legs. I walked around enjoying the calmness of the morning watching the sunlight dance across this lovely pond. I think sometimes we get going so fast moving from one event to the next that stopping for a second to breathe is pretty foreign feeling.
Although I live a very busy life, I try to make it a point to find time to be alone with my thoughts. I find the more I go inward, the more clarity I find on what's going on in the experiences in my life. I find that I need that quietness to really think about how I feel about a situation. Don't get me wrong, I love to spend time with others - but it's in these quiet moments I can really explore what my thoughts, feelings or attitudes are going to be about a situation.
