I’m beginning to see the beauty of life around me again after a rough first half of September.
Death has a way of making you see the fragility of life, a way of making you re-evaluate the way you’re living. Do I really want to waste my energy, time and resources on things that really just keep me busy and don’t give me a sense of peace and fulfillment? I think not.
Life goes on. Yet we make the choices that create that life and we decide what we want and what we don’t want.
This bee goes about it’s work of pollinating my fall asters — which were in bloom when I came from beyond my fog this month. He does what he needs to do, what he’s meant to do and flits from one flower to the next focused on his purpose.
Sometimes I lose clarity on my purpose, wandering aimlessly through the day with busy work instead of doing what will give me contentment and fulfillment. I go through the motions and look back and wonder where the time went. Life goes on.
