Expanding Your Horizons

Updated on September 16, 2013

When Time Reminds You

As I look out at the beautiful blue and white checkered sky

Seeing all the fluffy clouds suspended so high

I am so happy to be where I am today

As each of my thoughts come into focus

I just leave them alone and let them go where they must go

Seeing them drift and float in the open air

My body relaxing and just breathing

Enjoying my time here

When a world rushing to go in so many directions

There is no place I rather be

Than in the comfort of my own home

Looking over seeing my wife only a few feet away from me

With a smile on her face

Trusting our own instincts that have brought us together

In the company of one another

Is all that I want and need at this very moment

My eyes open and shut feeling the warmth in my chest

Breathing softly looking forward to the rest of my day

      That sounds like a very relaxing, contented poem. It sounds like your life, especially at certain moments, is very pleasant.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Such an important message.....close your eyes and breathe....allow the wonders of life to flow through you. How many people fail to do this daily? Far too many!

      One should be happy with life as it is hoping for what is not there or can't be is not going to bring you happiness the present is important to explore and gain ones strengths
