Meeting People For The First Time May 11, 2016Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Mindfulness, Nature, People.
We went to Heritage Village in Largo on a gorgeous spring day. Our moods matched the weather ~ sunny and bright.
We enjoyed our interactions with the docents and other visitors.
With no reason to look through the cloudy lens of past experience, we could just enjoy the NOW as we toured historic buildings.
We didn’t have any stale baggage (or barrels) to cart around because we shared no history.
Our interactions were new NOW.
No grievances, resentments, disappointments or expectations marred our view or caused us concern about the future.
We engaged for the first (and last) time without a backwards glance.
When we bring that same level of alert curiosity to our every day encounters, everything is new NOW.

Aah . . . that’s better!
