The most beautiful 5 minutes and 22 seconds you’ll spend today…

1 Oct

The most beautiful five minutes and 22 seconds you will spend today. . .  Thank you to Sue Robins (@suerobinsyvr), Nancy Stordahl (@nancyspoint) and many others who have recommended this to me. A conscious break like this is especially important to the freshly-diagnosed heart patient – who can often feel overwhelmed by pessimism and fear. 

After you experience the gorgeous images and words (from Benedictine monk and author Brother David Steindl-Rast), please share with us how they impacted you. 

Q: What message did you like from this little film?

    A beautiful beginning to my day. The concept of living as if this is the first day of your life…and living as if it is the last day of your life is a precious and valuable intention.

    What beautiful and peaceful images. Life truly is a gift. Every day there is beauty to see and love surrounding us. I will try to “stop and smell the roses” and maybe I can bring a smile to someone’s face today.

    Thank you for sharing
