Paying attention to the little things

Yesterday afternoon, in the spring sunshine, my walk was deliberate.

I wanted to pay attention to the little things.

Along the path, I noticed the gorgeous pops of vibrant violet-blue of the tiny speedwell, knowing that within hours, they would fade, having completed this fleeting stage of their lifecycle.

But they weren’t waiting for me to notice them. My presence did not confer their beauty.

Yet, I was given the opportunity to offer attention. And it was a gift.

What else might we notice and pay attention to this week?

And how might it change us in the process?

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
