Blinded by Life

San Diego is a beautiful county, this I know.  But I often don’t take the time to look at my surroundings when I’m driving to work, teaching, running errands, etc.  Yesterday I forced myself to look up from the road when I was heading home.  My eyes were greeted by an amazing view:  storm clouds hovering over the surrounding rocky hills.  This may not sound very exciting to you, but San Diego usually only gets storms from December to April.  The rest of the year is, yes, you got it, sunny and warm.  A storm anytime is an exciting thing for this former Iowa girl.  I can only imagine what views and wonders I would see should I force myself to notice my surroundings more often.

Take some time today to view the wonders of what is right in front of you.  What do you see?

  1. I have to do the same thing when I’m boarding. I get focused on technique, avoiding others, and not falling that I fail to notice the beauty and majesty of the Rocky Mountains.

    • I do the same thing, which is a bummer because Mammoth and the Rockies are crazy beautiful in the winter. I’m sure when you ski it’s a different problem – you’re too focused on getting to the bottom at record speed!
