“Live in the moment”


There is something about a sunrise which if in the moment will leave you …. …. ….

I awoke this morning and checked for sunrise time for Houghton Lake Michigan, Sunrise 6:51am. I got up, ran my three mile run, showered and headed to a point I had walked before. As I drove to this location I turned on my radio and the “Classic” Rock channel was playing. I knew it was going to be a great morning because the song playing was “Dream on” by Aerosmith. I took my last left hand turn and there before me was the lake and all parking spots were open, I was the only one at the park.

I sat in the car till 6:30am and as I got out a van pulled up. An elderly man got out; I knew he wasn’t from around here as we were both dressed in shorts, flip flops and sweat shirts. As I walked toward the small pier to view my sunrise and start of a great day; I met this gentleman, we gave each other the greeting of the day, shook hands. After speaking a while this man was from Florida and I am from Georgia, we laughed as it was a little nippy yet we both had our flip flops. He told me every morning at 6:30am he walks the park and brings in each day; I thought that was cool.

I headed to the pier, saw that the tide was out, quietly stood there waiting on the sunrise. I shut my brain off and just watched in awe as the sun slowly started making its way up. As the sky started to change colors, I felt a peace come over me; I felt a warmth, a calmness, no worries. As I stood there I forgot about the elderly gentleman; I felt a firm hand on my shoulder and I heard, “Welcome to a new day”, I wept; the site of starting a new day overtook me. I was in the moment. We stood there in silence and just soaked it all in.

Live in the moment.

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally confused
    .. Any suggestions? Thank you!

    When someone writes an post he/she keeps the idea of a user in his/her mind that
    how a user can be aware of it. Therefore that’s why this paragraph is amazing.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual
    appeal. I must say you have done a awesome job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera.
    Excellent Blog!

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
