As I’ve gotten older I have found that I look for more and more moments of peace. I need those times when I can take a deep breath and feel some quiet in the moment. One of my favorite things to do is go up to the sun deck of our apartment building and watch the sky. I feel most connected with the sky and with nature. It’s also really neat to look at the world from a different point of view. On clear days I can look west and see glimpses of the ocean or I can look east and see the Hollywood sign and the hills surrounding it. It’s also really cool to watch the planes land south of us at LAX.
It finally occurred to me that I could take pictures of what I see and share them with others. So just about every day I make it a point to go up to the sun deck, take some deep breaths, get some perspective, and take some pictures to share. And if I don’t make it up to the sun deck, it is now so ingrained in me to look at nature and my surroundings wherever I am and to take pictures and continue to share them. There’s a whole world out there to see. Why not share it? These meditations have helped me so much when it comes to dealing with the stress of multiple sclerosis, lupus and life in general. It helps me to remember it is not all about what is going on in my head.
With that being said, here’s some moments of peace I’ve been able to find in the past week:
Do you have any moments of peace you’d like to share? If so, I’d love to see them.
I hope you all have a really nice weekend!
