“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.” – Ferris Bueller
Summer is my favourite, today was warm and sunny. Warm and wonderful days are the perfect time to reflect on the abundance in your life and to be grateful.
Sometime it is easy to let the weekend fill up with chores or tasks you did not have time for during the week. Always make sure to leave some time open for fun and relaxation – especially during summer if its beautiful outside!
The best experiences I have had are when I have allowed myself to let the odd bits shine out. It is hard to be vulnerable sometimes, and so often we are wrapped up in perceived competitions or over-worried about acceptance that the face we show the world isn’t really our own, but a face we think the word wants to see. Perhaps consider letting that shit go and just showing the world your face every now and then. It might lead to something wonderful.
Think of all the things that we have discovered in the past decade. We (as in human society) sent a craft to photograph the planet Pluto. We discovered earth-like planets orbiting a nearby dwarf star. There are so many applications that make our lives easier and put the world at our fingertips. We essentially live with pocket computers. We have made incredible advancements in gene therapy and made strides to understand the effect that gut bacteria has on our overall health. Just imagine what more there is to discover and what amazing things the future will bring.
Whoops, I forgot to hit “Publish” on yesterday’s post! I am quite sorry, things have been a little crazy here lately. You may have noticed that my posts are a bit shorter and less detailed – I have been quite busy lately starting some new endeavors, and my mind has been a bit scattered. However, never fear, I still have loads of goat photographs to share and plan to continue seeking out new goats to share.
It is easy sometimes to feel drained on a Monday after a super fun and active weekend. Find rest when you can, and when you can’t there is always coffee. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
Make sure to get a lot of rest for the first full week of summer ahead. Wherever your summer adventures take you, I hope it is wonderful.
No matter what time of year it is, what time of day it is, the right choice is always to be kind and compassionate. If you are ever in doubt of what to do, choose the thing that is the most kind.
Today is the longest day of the entire year, if you live in the northern hemisphere. Because the planet Earth (the one we live on) rotates around the sun on a tilted axis, certain parts of the planet get more or less sun depending on the time of year. Basically, billions of years ago, when our solar system was being formed, tons of bits of mass collided together to form mini planets, which then collided together to form proto-planets, which eventually became most of what our planet is now. Then, another pro-planet collided with the prelude to Earth and put us on our lovely little tilt which is reasonable for the seasons. Amazing! And the seasons are a big part of why life was able to flourish on our planet. Incredible how things tend to all fall into place like that!
