The FallsMarch 22nd, 2012 | Posted by in Perspectives
Last year when my family went to Yellowstone we hiked down to the Lower Falls. And what an incredible sight it was! When that much water if flying off a cliff, the size of your life seems awfully small. While we were there I noticed a few bits of garbage beyond the fence. Obviously there was no way to retrieve it. Since litter literally bugs the heck out of me, I found it troubling. Then all at once it hit me. I was missing the entire moment. Here I was in front of this tremendously awesome sight, and I was focusing on these minute imperfections that no one could do anything about. It was one of those ah-ha moments that you never forget. The world is full of beauty, but half the time I’m running around trying to fix, fix, fix. Sometimes there really is peace in stopping to enjoy the moments of our lives. It doesn’t take much effort. We just have to look at the bigger picture.
