With all of these hands on classes I have been so excited and enamored to learn and absorb all that has been said in class that it's hard to remember that I'm not just learning for the fun of it, but to actually be tested. So then I have to make sure to take notes and then I'm not enjoying myself as much because I'm busy trying to remember what I should be writing down that's important for testing.
Oh gone are the days that I could just keep my head in the clouds and enjoy learning things at face value. As an adult I see this happen more often, that I’m snapped back into reality so quick that the enjoyment of the little things escapes much quicker. Just last week on my way home from an intense lecture at school I took a moment and enjoyed the way the sunshine was spreading it warmth and light on to the street in front of me. I was so caught up in the sunshine’s simple beauty that I almost stopped my car so I could make the moment last longer.
My hubby sometimes refers to my simple mindedness like Winnie the Pooh Bear content with his head stuffed with fluff watching butterflies play and dance all day.
What's wrong with that?
