The Joy of....... Paying Attention

At a recent weekend workshop, I had the humbling, yet illuminating experience of discovering just how much I miss seeing when I’m focused on where I’m going and dashing by the scenery.   Our assignment was to think about something we want more of in our lives and then go for a walking meditation in the beautiful woods surrounding the retreat center and see what we noticed pertaining to our stated desire.
My goal was to create more space for fun and play after realizing I'd been far too focused on work and chores and too little on laughter for far too long.  With that intention, I walked out the front door and immediately had my answer. During every break that day, I’d run out to my car for one reason or another, so I was shocked to discover I’d walked by a sandbox and play area five times without even noticing it was there.  Only when I headed off to the woods with a focus on play, did I even see it.

We experience what we focus on and, in the process, miss a lot of what is right in front of us.  I’d been so focused on retrieving items from the car that I’d missed the glaringly present play area.  How often have you been so focused on achieving a goal or getting someplace in a hurry, that you didn’t even notice the scenery or fully experience the joy of traveling from where you were to where you wanted to be?


Timeless Wisdom


"I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” 

― Maya Angelou
