Lately, the second my alarm goes off in the morning I look like the squirrel in the picture. I never want to move from the comfort and warmth of my bed. 


The weather is colder, the mornings are darker, it is raining more than it should, the wind is giving you shivers down your spine and all we want is a cup of nice warm tea, a onsie and to sit in front of a blaring hot fire... I had the flu last weekend and when it came to yesterday morning, Tuesday, I put on a huge coat, a thick scarf and went to my many meetings for the day. When I returned home I felt a sense of emptiness and all I wanted to do was curl up in the bed again. To my shock and horror I realised that I didn’t truly see anything throughout the day. I walked to and from work with my chin tucked into my scarf so I could keep warm, my head was down and all I wanted to do was go home - what an awful waste! 
 

This morning I decided that I wanted to see the beauty today. I wrapped up extra warm so the cold wouldn’t distract me and on the way to work I saw the beauty all around me... The colours of red, amber, purple, green, brown and yellow of the leaves, the colour of sky as the sun moves about throughout the day, the hustle of the squirrels as they hide away out of the cold and the children laughing as they play in their school yard! WOW! We live in such a magical world... Look up! Listen! and see the beauty around us, what do you see?...
