“If you can picture this – a day in December. Picture this – freezing cold weather.” Blondie.
Picture this, a scene of tranquillity, possibly one in which the surroundings are a reflection of our inner peace and outer calmness. Of course it could be right now you are already living in such a reality and my invitation to see this vision of life merely requires a lifting of the eyes.
Alternatively the scene described above might be a million miles from that of the moment for you. Yet you can picture this too, in this case by closing your eyes and looking into your heart.
For some people peacefulness is also found in the middle of what others would consider chaos. They may choose to picture this idea of energy and movement not in a negative or off-putting manner, but in one embracing the excitement of life experienced to the full.
The richness of variety never fails to shine bright it seems. How we decide to picture this moment contains our vision of where we are now, together with the sum of our emotions, sensations and overriding thoughts in this instance.
As with life itself, time flows and as we picture this now we are already in the process of discovering the next and then the one after that and so on. Endless moments making up our day.
So, if perhaps we decide this picture is not of our liking, let’s not fret too much as in the time it takes to read this Picture this post a new one is before us.
