Ducklings

I had the pleasure of going on a walk with my twins and my friend Heidi and her little guy this morning. We saw some fluffy baby ducklings and goslings waddling across the path and swimming in the river. What a sweet sight to see as we walked along with our own little ducklings. It never ceases to amaze me how great it feels to be active and get outside. My 5 year old twin boy’s may argue this point around mile two on their bikes but still soldier on. Sometimes I think that if everyone in the world could get outside for a few minutes to become aware of all the beauty around us we would all be better to each other. “Give yourself a gift of five minutes of contemplation in awe of everything you see around you. Go outside and turn your attention to the many miracles around you. This five-minute-a-day regimen of appreciation and gratitude will help you to focus your life in awe.” Wayne Dyer

If only people could see baby ducklings every day and or other small miracles, I believe this world would be a better place. I HOPE that my efforts to get outside briefly each day inspires others to do the same, because even a small healthy persuasion is something to celebrate, a small miracle itself.
