Get Some Peace, A Quiet Early Morning
I woke up really early this morning and was downstairs by 5am. The house was quiet and the world was asleep, yet outside was suffused with a beautiful warm yellow light.
The birds were hard at work doing their morning things - a thrush was plucking worms from our lawn, while 2 pigeons were hunting for seeds and grain within the grass. I watched a robin singing merrily away in the midst of our cherry tree, proudly huffing out his chest. While inside I cradled a warm cup of tea, smiled and was at peace.
I didn't do much else really for an hour or so, yet the time glided by and I ended out having a really productive day at work sorting out loads of things that I should have tackled ages ago.
Perhaps we should take more time out in our days simply to be, relax and do nothing. This unpicks the various tensions in our brains and bodies, and let's us reposition ourselves. The problem is most of us try to fill those precious moments of peace with some activity or TV or whatever else.
I say just relax and be at peace.
