“When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a flower with the other.” Chinese Proverb.
Being functional and practical is a necessary and important part of our lives.
However, as important as it is to have a roof over our heads and food on our tables, it is equally important to be aware of that part of life that nurtures our spirit and our soul.
We risk only half living if we miss what can lift our spirits and bring joy to our hearts.
To do this, it’s important to appreciate the priceless gifts that are around us on a daily basis - the sunshine and the rain, the flowers and the grass, the mountains and the sky, the oceans and the fields, the very colours and patterns and textures of it all.
They keep giving to us without asking anything in return except to enjoy, care for and appreciate them.
When did you last stop, appreciate and express gratitude for the beauty that surrounds you in nature, and in doing so nurture your spirit?
