Weekend Wisdom: Noticing what you love will help you release what you don’t.
I went for a walk this week.
I didn’t count my steps or walk fast to burn calories. This was a joy-walk. I noticed every extraordinary, ordinary thing. I gave attention to the way the sun felt on my face, the shadows on the sidewalk, and the pollen-filled flowers that the spring trees left on the ground.
I listened to the quiet neighborhood, enjoyed the scent of a freshly cut lawn and wondered why we don’t allow ourselves more time to notice the everyday extraordinary, ordinary things.
It may feel like a waste of time but it’s really important, soul-filling work.
Ok … onto the favorites.
