Ok technically tortoise time, but still! I saw this little critter while walking to the beach yesterday, and guess what this might be a spoiler alert: I am not currently in Chicago.
It was a bright sunny day, and I was headed to the beach so I was already in a pretty good mood. However, nothing makes me happier than seeing animals in the wild so this little tortoise was quite the happy accident. It also served as a reminder to take the time to enjoy the moment, be present, and appreciate your surroundings. It would have been all too easy to simply walk past this little guy and never even notice its presence. That would have been a shame, because then I never would have found myself standing on a boardwalk in the middle of the day happily singing to myself “turtle time!” (You can watch the original “Turtle Time” here and thank you Ramona Singer of Real Housewives of New York fame for bringing this gem into our lives).
Let today’s post serve as a reminder to appreciate the moments that bring us joy every day. Take a moment today to stop and spot the tortoise, or, whatever small thing it is that makes you happy 🙂
