Leafing it up

Have you ever stopped to smell the roses.  Or have you ever stopped to look that the design of a leaf.  They are so simple, yet they contain complexity.  They come in many shapes, sizes, colors, and styles.  Yet for all its beauty we rush by them and ignore the beauty around us.

For these reasons we should slow down from our busy day and admire what has been naturally created.

How would our lives be different if we spent some time to slow down?  Would we be less stress?  Would we have less problems in our lives?

I would say that our lives would be better, if we would find balance in our lives.  One way to find that balance is to slow down to reexamine our priorities.  If we slow down without a plan of what we are going to do, then we might find it boring and then never do it again.  So we need to have a plan.

I would suggest the following plan to start with:

  • Find something to admire or watch from nature such as leaves
  • Think about what you have done in the past day, week, or month
  • Evaluate if the things you have done are really important or have they just wasted time
  • If they were important ask yourself "Did I give up something more important to do this activity?"
  • If you did give up something more important, then think about a way to bring the most important things back into your life.
If we are able find balance in our lives, then maybe we will be able fix some of the diseases that we have because of stress.

Green smoothy

How it might be
That we must see
The things before you
That we must pursue

Finding life in things done
Underneath the sun
Combining them together
From things we gather

The end is green
As the plants seen
That were added for health
And not for stealth

We hope we grow
With nutrition sown
In our green drink
To prevent the dreary brink

Far Far Away

Here we sit thinking
About the great world around us
It passes by as we continue blinking
Wondering why everyone has to fuss
How small we really are
When compared to those afar
How can we continue on
Underneath the sun

Why are we here
Instead of there
When all thing can go wrong
Why don't we sing a sad song
About the insignificance of our lives
That could end by knives
Without the love of our wives
In these dives

Why does anything exist
If nothing once existed
What enjoy the great dark bliss
What caused the bleak void to be resisted
The loneliness of nothing
Was replaced with massive things
What caused the chaos to become order
The great worlds to gain border

What caused the great nothing to gain lives
The type of life to think of what can be
And what could be with wives
As far as we can see
Here we sit thinking
As it passes us by as we are blinking.
