At times, when we have no expectations, life surprises us and we are richly rewarded.
That happened to my friend Liz and myself when we decided to leave super early for a hike up puig Tomir yesterday, to beat the heat....which never came by the way.
We scrambled up the mountain in the mist of the morning and if I hadnt stopped and turned around to say something to Liz, we would have missed the view behind us altogether.
It was a magical moment looking back at puig Major and puig Massanella sticking through the cloud below us. A complete wow moment that had us both stopped in our tracks in disbelief, that the world can be so very surprising and beautiful.
It made me grateful again on so many levels. First, that i have friends mad enough to get up with the sparrows to do such things as walk up a mountain.
Second, that we set off on a hike on a day, that did not promise perfect weather, which in return gave us an experience so different, that i think I'll never forget it.
And third realising that we miss so much when we limit ourselves and our thoughts about what perfection is.
Get out there and just do it people!! Live the best life you can. Sometimes you will find the perfect life closer to home than you think and may just be free.
