Look Up! You Might Be Surprised What You See
Posted October 21, 2013on:
When I hike I have a tendency to look at the ground about 10 feet ahead of me, staying alert to things in my path that might cause me to trip. I can be in the middle of nature’s incredible beauty and all I see is dirt.
When I go for walks in my neighborhood, I do the same. Focus on the concrete, sometimes finding heart shapes in its imperfections or earth worms I can save.
When I look up, the beauty and expansiveness of the world can surprise me. The world is so much more than I focus on. It is filled with color and the sky seems to go on forever.
I am going to practice looking up. I want to experience the expansiveness of my surroundings and the beauty all around me. I want to feel it and soak it in. I want to expand the number of things I have to be grateful for.
Will you join me?
