It's been too long

It's been too long since I went outside, and just sat there or lied there in the sun, aware, but not alone. It's been too long since I absorbed the energy of the sun or the birds or the trees around me. It's been a long long long long time since I took a break from life. For over a year now, the world has been spinning, rapidly, busily. Things have been growing, moving, changing. The world has been living. The world has been singing. The world has been humming, cheering, running. I have been watching, escaping. Too much of this, too much of that. Not enough time. Not enough time. Take some advice. Don't live your life like that. Don't live your life worrying, and planning. Don't live your life working and working. Seize the moment. Take life as it comes. You will find yourself happier. Calmer. Don't worry about everything. Take the time. Just some time, to do nothing. Do nothing but sit in the sun, in the shade, in a tree, by a stream, by a lake, and think. Take it all in. Breathe. Sing. Listen. Give yourself peace. It is tangible if you let it be.
