I have long been enamored with the sky; its mystery and majesty. From pondering what secrets the universe holds to simply enjoying the gleeful and sometimes moody dance of clouds, I’m a sky watcher.
My hobbies of sky gazing and photography fit nicely into Teri Webster’s Sunday Stills challenge; ‘Sky‘. And, consequently, I have had my head in the clouds more often than usual this week.
Clouds are formed when the sun warms the earth and moisture rises and clusters together, catching bits of dust from the atmosphere along the way. Light and wind play a part as they dance across the sky, forever evolving and changing. Whether you observe them with reverence or curiosity, they always have a story to tell and a lesson to teach.
The sky is a vast expanse in which to explore dreams, seek inspiration, find clarity and peace.
Storms are inevitable. Our job is to prepare, seek shelter and have patience.
Light always follows darkness.
A heart filled with optimism and gratitude is better prepared to deal with life’s challenges.
An unexamined life reveals very little that is true and honest. Look first at your own reflection.
With each new day dawns a new opportunity to better understand yourself and to improve the quality of your life; be inspired, find peace, acceptance, renewed confidence and joy. There are lessons to be learned when we look from a different perspective. This week I hope you’ll take some to reflect on life and remember to look up.
Sky gazing is a simple pleasure that brings great joy, and that is what makes me smile this week. Shared with Trent’s Weekly Smile challenge. Please take a minute to visit Trent’s World and leave your smile.
