There’s always so much to think about, so many things to do, a huge list of things to remember. We’re trying to be everything to everyone all the time. We set very high expectations of ourselves and so often we can get caught up in our heads.
Sometimes the simple things have to grab our attention
So while we’re busying ourselves with all this ‘stuff’, running through lists in our heads, getting to places on time and having everything we need when we arrive we tend to miss the simple things.
We don’t notice them, we take them for granted, they just become part of the background.
Sometimes the only way we notice them is for them to jump up and catch our eye, or for other people to stop us and bring them to our attention.
Sometimes other people need to help us to see the simple things
…and today I wanted to share a moment when that happened to me. A beautiful little girl stopped me in my tracks and brought me right back to the present moment in the most lovely way possible. Watch the video now to see how…
This was a beautiful moment for me, and it really made me focus on what was important.
Would you need someone else to point out the simple things too?
So take a moment this week to find ways to appreciate the simple things without needing a cute little 2 year old to jump in and help! Every moment of every day you have the ability to appreciate something small and seemingly unimportant that when you focus on it can completely change your perspective.
…and if you enjoyed the story then please take a moment share it to inspire others to remember to remember the simple things too!
