That hallway you see was the one that led to my plush room at a Luxury Hotel in Orlando Florida. I went on a business trip back in November of 2012, and I remember how I just took everything in; the lavish grounds that had an Italy theme going on — right down to the cobblestone streets.
I’d sit, quietly, for an hour beside that man-made harbor, looking at all the ripples the calm current caused, and I’d marvel at the various species of birds that would frequent the decorative, stationary, multicolored, wooden row-boats, scattered about.
I also took the time to gaze into some of the most warm, brilliant, sunsets I had ever seen, because I wanted to embellish the blessing and not take it for granted.
The older I get the more I understand that, when those moments come, you just go with the flow. I enjoyed that trip more than any other I had been on up to that point, because I refused to let negativity in.
Some complain about everything; this ain’t right, that ain’t right, they should have fixed the food this way, it would be better if…
It will be better once I skip out of your presence, because…
Live and let live, and make the most of every moment, for they are as fleeting as a season and a day.
