i wanted to share one more safari park post, but this time minus the main attraction, the animals. of course they are fabulous, but i always like to take some time away from them when i’m at the park. i have a couple of special spots where i like to hang out with my coffee and journal.
hardly anyone comes up there, but alas, they are missing this amazing display of desert plants. while i was marveling at them and photographing them i realized anew that the best antidote to that feeling that time is ”flying” by unaccounted for is to spend as much of it as possible being fully present in the moment.
for me it’s harder to do this when i’m around other people. it comes much easier when i’m by myself…. hence, my love of solitude. it allows me to really dig into each moment, utterly awake, and bask in that precious feeling of being fully alive.
and when life is experienced in this manner…. one moment at a time, it slooooows down and doesn’t feel nearly as “flighty”. try it!!
