My View of This World
When we go for a bicycle ride my dadz always turns around and peaks at me to make sure I'm okay. I look back at him, titling my head to let him know that I am enjoying the cool breeze. Most of the time though, when I'm being pulled around in my bicycle baby wagon, I'm not looking at dadz, I'm facing backwards, looking at the world as it whizzes by me. I'm taking in all of the colors of the trees, the cobbles of the streets, the noises coming from the houses, and the various smells lingering in the air. I'm enjoying the world, taking in all that surrounds me, enthralled by the tapestry of life.
One time momma asked dadz, "Do you think he's bored back there in his baby wagon?" "No," my dadz said, "he's living his life." Dadz was right. I find that when you relax, sit back and take in the glory of every day living, your life takes on a new meaning, and you explore your life with a new found sense of calm. There is no more worry about any preconceived outcome, no more trying to make things happen in any specific way. I'm just sitting in my bicycle baby wagon, enjoying the view from my life at that the moment. It is amazing to be an active witness to the beauty that exists in this world.
Take a moment to sit and and be thankful for the millions of miracles that occur every second of every day; and remember that you are one of those miracles. Be kind to yourself, be grateful and enjoy your view of this world.
With love, Mattiedog
