Have you ever been on your phone or computer all day and realise you haven’t even noticed your surroundings? You’ve been soo busy in your own head, you’ve missed what’s right in front of you?
It’s so easy to do and often we don’t appreciate the small things or what’s been there all along.
I sat in my room the other day looking out the window behind my beautiful sheer white curtains and I took in my surroundings. I’ve been soo busy thinking of everything that needs doing that I’d forgotten to appreciate what’s around me. I began thinking of when we first moved into our new room with polished concrete floors, exposed rafters, an en-suite, a big king bed and beautiful big windows that let the sun light beam in. I was soo excited for the first night we slept in our new room. I started to remember that feeling I had and realised I’d gotten complacent with our room and my appreciation had slipped away.
I’ve been soo busy worrying about what’s next:
-extend the deck
-do the washing
-vacuum the floors
-post on social media
-create Veggie garden
And the list keeps going
My list often becomes endless and I always worry about the next things rather than focusing on what I have Right Now. I forget to Appreciate Everything we have already created. I get soo worked up on improving that I don’t notice how much we’ve already achieved and the beauty in my own home.
This last week I’ve been taking time to slow down, breathe, look up and take in what’s around me. Take in my beautiful bedroom, take in our beautiful yard for the kids to play, take in our big open kitchen. Appreciate what we’ve built and worked soo hard for. Look up from my phone and notice what’s right in front of me.
Today’s Tip is to Stop Hustling soo Hard you Forget what You’ve Already Created.
See the Beauty You Have Right Now!
