Nature gave a little reminder today of the importance of pausing and getting present in order to see the treasures always there beneath our very feet. Treasures we so often miss in our hurry to pursue... ironically, "treasures." On my walk this morning, I had a sudden urge to stop. No REAL reason per se, just a pause. Yet as I did so, I had an opportunity to look down, and find, directly in front of my right foot, this tiny, perfectly geometric spiral of a shell (and I do mean tiny - that's my pinky finger there for scale) that had no business being there. This nearly imperceptible little beauty, this perfection, this small entire world so easy to miss. It allowed for some personal reflection. How many of those are we consistently missing out on, rushing past, with our future-oriented mind? What wonders are directly in front of us, what opportunities, what people, what inspiration? I encourage you. Pause. Look around more often. Search for the wonder in each moment. And watch how quickly your mind begins to naturally perceive and seek it out. Watch how it begins to operate from that space of presence, and from a place of witnessing and observing all the joy, wonder and abundance that's available to us each and every moment. It's simply a perspective shift, a new lens through which we get to view and engage the world. It's all already there. We just need to train our minds to pause and look and "see" what is in fact, always present. πŸ™β€οΈπŸ˜Š
