Apparently, one minute challenges are very popular. It's probably a testament to how little I interact with popular culture that I wasn't aware of that until today. In any event, when I saw this image on Facebook, I decided it would make a great one minute challenge for whoever reads my blog.
So here's the challenge: For one minute, walk outside and stand there in silence. Look up at the sky and contemplate now amazing life is.
You'll probably want to do this on a night when it's clear and you can see the moon and a few stars. That seems to make people feel a certain sense of awe. Clouds just don't cut the mustard.
If you prefer daylight, why not try going outside to see the sunrise? That's awesome, too. All it takes is just one minute, but I bet you'll want to do this exercise for longer than that. Go ahead, indulge yourself in the revelation of just how amazing Life is, how amazing Nature is. You might even think of a few other things that are amazing. :-)
