My husband took me for an afternoon date to The Speed Art Museum. The museum opened it’s doors this past weekend with a 30-hour opening event.
Before the Speed closed for renovations in 2011, I frequented the museum for the environment that provided. It was a space for solitude and growth, fitting for my late 20’s.
Walking through the art displays, then and even now, reminds me that no matter how complicated life can feel, it’s all temporary.
Sometimes we get lost in the details but if widen our scope on any situation and adjust our view, the big picture can become clear.
Looking at art whether its in a museum, in the wind that dances through the trees at the park, or even in the eyes of a person you love; art is there.
Looking for art in your daily life can provide you with a significant amount of gratitude for the life you live.
Every day that passes is a day we’ll never get back. It’s a paper we can’t edit, a missed opportunity we passed, a brushstroke that is unchangable, and possibly a lost chance at seeing a person ever again.
There are so many things we experience each day. Sometimes we get so busy it takes a hard moment of concentration to recall what we had for lunch yesterday.
Yet we’re able to recall the moments that made an impression on our heart or mind because of the happiness, sadness, enlightenment, contentment, or spiritual connection we felt.
Relish these moments.
One day your life will flash before your eyes. Be sure it’s worth watching.
