Today I'm not doing anything spectacular: I'm sitting in my PJs watching Cars with my sister. And it's 12:34. My Hogwarts robe has not left my shoulders since I woke up this morning, my hair is a mess, and I'm debating whether it's actually worth the energy it would take to get up and shut the window that's letting in a draft.
The world is such a busy place sometimes. Everybody's always rushing to get somewhere. Everybody's always in such a hurry....
And we're always so busy, we don't stop to take in what's around us. The simple beauty of the universe.
In my last post I talked about realising the beauty in ourselves and in others, and I've realised since then that I forgot something. Something very, very important:
It is beautiful.
Yet there is also beauty in other places.
My heart has always belonged to cities. I love where I live, with its plush green fields that stretch for miles and the towering trees that shade me from the faint sun whenever I go for a walk....and yet I am itching to leave.
I want the excitement of the city. I want to be caught in the everyday hustle and bustle of people going places, of the click-clack of shoes on pavement and the large buildings that scrape the sky above.
I love the thrill of being busy, of always having something to do.
And yet I also love the peace and serenity of solace, of being in quiet places with those that I love.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's good to slow down every once in a while, as long as you don't forget that sometimes it's worth living in the fast lane.
I apologize for the madness of this post. It's sort of all over the place, isn't it? I just felt like writing everything I was thinking about today and what was playing on my mind.
Is there anybody out there who feels like this sometimes? Does anybody ever just want time to stop, to slow down, or perhaps to just stay the way that it is? If you can relate, I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions in the comments below, even if you just want to vent or to ramble....quite like I've done today.
