ENJOY THE LITTLE THINGS & DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF…
Are you constantly on the go, rushing through life without seeing the natural beauty that surrounds you every day?
For the last couple of months, I’ve been taking life at a slightly different pace – not necessarily slower but certainly ensuring I have the opportunity to look at things from a different perspective.
Look what I would have missed if I’d continued on the hamsters wheel Poem: Hamsters to Swans…
I certainly wouldn’t have noticed the beauty of this simple pansy in my garden and I’m sure I would have missed the shimmering dew glistening on those vibrant coloured petals.
I finally realised that it’s important to stop for a moment and reflect on what is a priority in my life and to look at my world through a different lens.
What colours are you missing in your life as you rush through each day? Maybe it’s the little things that if you spent a moment to notice would bring a new joy to your life.
It’s not just what we fail to see, but also what we don’t hear – the missed conversation with a child as we walk along pushing a buggy with the phone to our ear… or glued to the TV/Computer screen when our partner arrives home.. or making a presumption without listening to the full story and composing our response rather than REALLY listening….
Look what I saw when I made a conscious effort to See, Smell, Listen and Feel the beauty in My World.
What would you see if you paid attention and looked at your world through a different lens?
Take a moment to review how you are living your life – is it making you happy and if the answer is ‘NO’, maybe it’s time for you to change the lens on your camera and look at your world from a different perspective.
I’d love to hear what you see from this new angle… Leave me a comment and let me know…
