I don’t know if we give enough time and love to the sunrises of our lives. I know how busy we’ve all become, that this idea we’ve planted of what it takes to be successful has overtaken like a weed and choked out all the other flowers, and I know simple things like sunrises have been the victim of this choking altogether too often. What I ask is for you to make the time for the sunrises, the sunsets. Rearrange your demands of yourself, and allot yourself the time and energy to seek out little bits of beauty scattered throughout the day. It’s so easy to miss things with this cult of busy-ness, and we must rage against it. Time is short, life is short, soak it all in.
Sunrise slow to come,
a chill that keeps us snuggled.
Heartbeats and whispers.

So true. And I think it goes beyond busy-ness to distractions. Our phones account for limitless distractions in texts, social media, etc. It can be dangerously easy to drown out any quiet we find with noise and consumption. But when I can be intentional about turning off the phone so I can be present in the moment, I am happier for it.
I am obsessed with the sunrise. I try to rise early - before the business to have time alone with the sun.
