I’m sitting by a lake right now, watching the ducks paddle across the water. On the hike here I came across a doe and her fawn. I almost didn’t come today. I almost stayed at home so I could boot up the computer and catch up on some work. Crazy. Stupid. I would have missed out on this opportunity to reflect on the beautiful world around me. It’s so important to take a look around every now again and reflect on what’s important to you. If I had stayed home to work I would have found that there was more work waiting for me at the office tomorrow. But this moment? This experience by the lake, with the sun shining and birds singing? I would have missed it and it would be gone forever.
