Sometimes it’s so hard to just be and to enjoy the moment.

How often are we mind-wandering in the past and the future and the here and now literally slips away.

We are super excited when we do or see things for the first time. But when we start to get used to them, we might not pay as much attention or actually appreciate them.

Unfortunately, sometimes we realise too late that what we had was very special.

I have been living in New Zealand for 4 years and I’m still excited to see a sheep. Sounds silly right?! Some people do smile or laugh about it. 

​But I hope it will never change.
