Do you every just stop and look up? Do you take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the sky?
I remember spending hours when I was younger just staring at the stars. My friends and I would lie on the basketball courts (or when we got older, on the roof of the pavilion) and just stare and talk. It was easier to talk like that...staring at the wide open sky, discussing the issues of the day or dreaming about what life would be like in the future...
20+ years later, we are too involved in the hustle and bustle of our lives. The details and the logistics of adult life really take away the time we have to breathe deeply, calm our minds and dream of the future or even just process the day.
Now, I am out in the world...chasing my dreams,yes, but I chase them alone (supported by my husband and friends and family, yes, but still alone) and I dream while scheduling everything in my planner.
I long for a night of just laying on a basketball court, staring at the stars, feeling like life was moving so slow again and yearning to be out in the world chasing my dreams.
When was the last time you stopped and took a moment to look up?
