Reflective Perspective

The sun, once again, shimmers through the branches of a sturdy oak tree and we know that time does, indeed, stand still in many ways.

The gigantic, orange harvest moon slides above the eastern horizon and we know that time does, indeed, stand still in many ways.

The feather-like snowflakes gently swirl and zigzag from the winter sky and settle in a soft, featherbed covering the ground and we know that time does, indeed, stand still in many ways.

The pristine, sweet mountain air satisfies as the babbling, tumbling, mountain brook pacifies and falls away through the hillside meadow and we know that time does, indeed, stand still in many ways.

The riotous colors of summer flowers dance to the rhythm of a gentle breeze and we know that time does, indeed, stand still in many ways.

The indomitable power of the sea thrusts its tongue of frothing waves up the shoreline as the sunlight plays on the surface and we know that time does, indeed, stand still in many ways.

A child laughs uncontrollably as the family dog licks the child’s face with unconditional love and we know that time does, indeed, stand still in many ways.

A family gathers on a sunny, Sunday afternoon and shares mirth and a meal and we know that time does, indeed, stand still in many ways.

In these times of “over-tasking,” time needs to stand still on occasion so we can all catch our breath; recharge our batteries; connect with our humanity; and wonder at the magic, yet brevity, of this life.  The above are some of the things that make time briefly stand still for me and allow me to gain from the power of reflective perspective.  What makes time stand still for you so you can gain reflective perspective?

In a flash of time, we are gone.  Will we have stopped enough “to smell the roses?”  Reflect on the perspective gained from you considering the answer to that question and then, act accordingly.
