I’ve decided to be more present and to focus on feeling all that my life throws my direction. The good, the bad and the ugly.
Today it was good. I had the chance to visit the Desert Botanical Garden this morning with some friends, it was free today thanks to Target (which I stopped at on my way home and spent more than the general admission, so it was a wash!). I tried hard to be present and to really enjoy the day with my daughter, to appreciate her and what she enjoyed.
I hadn’t visited the butterfly exhibit in YEARS, and it was a treat. The baby enjoyed the butterflies too, she very much wanted to grab them (and probably rip their wings off!)
In an attempt to appreciate the desert (which I struggle with), I looked around and tried to find a view that made the desert look pretty. I liked the contrast of the Papago Mountains near the front entrance…
Question- those of you who do not live here, do you think the desert is beautiful? Can you appreciate the greens and browns and dry earth?
