Honestly, one of my favorite things about living in the Oklahoma panhandle is the amazing sunsets that I get to witness most nights. After living in the big city for several years, I cherish these beautiful moments even more.
Last Sunday, I spent several hours on the farm helping Colby get the sprinklers running. (By helping, I mean watching and taking pictures, obviously.) We worked until dark and I got to witness the amazingness that is a beautiful sunset. I forget about my worries- homework, wedding planning, and upcoming exams- and instead marvel at the world that is around me.
“The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.”
– James Allen.
“This is moral perfection: to live each day as though it were the last; to be tranquil, sincere, yet not indifferent to one’s fate.”
– Marcus Aurelius
Life on the farm may busy and insane, but at the end of the day, I’m glad for every little second- especially the moments of tranquility and peace. These are the times that I want to remember forever. What moments do you treasure in your life?
