MVP: Pause and appreciate the short moments of beauty.
Last Friday morning as I was composing this week’s Strategic Leader Daily emails, I was treated to a wonderful sight.
I looked up and through our west=facing window and the trees were lit up like a golden spotlight was shining on them. I sat for a minute in awe of the simple beauty.
Rousing myself, I stepped outside to look east to the sunrise responsible for making my heart sing.
Just as I stepped out the door, the miraculous light faded away. It had been a product of the interplay between the morning sun and some uniquely positioned clouds.
And now it was gone.
Today’s intention: Flashes of beauty occur every day, but they are often fleeting, and even when seen can be under-appreciated. Think back on this week to those special moments, especially the ones which found you being fully present with another human being. Did you pause to appreciate the beauty of the moment and the gift of being able to work with such wonderful souls? Or were you too busy?
