Hello Gorgeous! Thanks For Brightening My Day

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado CRE# 40005863

This morning I was busy reading entries into the August "Show Us Your Summer Blooms" challenge and entering the names into the Excel spreadsheet I have created for tracking.  


Once I was done, I minimized Excel on screen number two and was greeted with this beautiful bloom.


I stopped what I was doing in ActiveRain to take in the beauty on the monitor to my right.  What a nice surprise.


I know it may sounds simple and silly to some.


It was just a bit of a "OH" moment for me.


If I only keep open what I am currently working on and minimize the other programs, I am treated to something lovely.


Part of me thought how this could apply to everyday life as well.  


If we focus on what is important and try not to be distracted by everything else, just think of the amazing things we could all accomplish.


If you need some inspiration by way of your desktop theme, take a few moments to browse what is out there and available to you.


Just right click anywhere in your desktop.

From the menu, select Personalize

Next go to Themes and check out the wonders you could have displayed on your working screen.

Hi Belinda - You're right. I have always spent some time and effort on my wallpaper with exactly that thought in mind.

I know what you mean.  I said almost the same words to the big pot in our hall full of purple glads, and then there are the one table downstairs that are a vibrant red...they just keep me smiling. A

Sounds like you need to close all of the screens more often from time to time and soak in the beauty!

Hi Belinda, 

I got a big smile as I continued to read your post.  I have a pic of my grandbaby sleeping with his bunny and my mouse has a button that I can sweep everything off the desk top to see it every time I want to.  It makes a huge difference !

Belinda, I typically work my engineering job with two monitors.  And my background?  Rotating shots from my flower garden.  I pulled out some of my favorites and have a folder that Windows uses for background.  Nice to see nature while I'm sitting in a cubicle :)  Bill

Hi Belinda

I rally liked the sentiments expressed in your post. Something to always keep in mind. Nature's beauty, whether in real life or on the screen, is not to be ignored, or taken for granted.

Well, I have never done this and am not sure what I created, but hopefully at least it will pull up (randomly) photos from the scads I've made over the years. This happens on my desktop and I never knew how to duplicate it--am hoping that I did that on my laptop just now!

Hi  Belinda --- no flowers, beach scenes or fascinating people on my wallpaper --- it's rather boring...but check in with what's going inside my head -- now...there's some exciting things brewing.  LOL

When we focus on what's important  . . . . we push the distraction out of our thinking.

Good luck and success.
